Developmental Biology Scientific Interest Group
Developmental biology is at the leading edge of modern biomedical research. The study of developmental mechanisms is inherently interdisciplinary and includes embryology, cell and molecular biology, biochemistry, genetics and genomics as well as systems biology. The Scientific Interest Group (SIG) seeks to foster and coordinate interactions among all NIH developmental biologists who employ diverse experimental approaches and distinct model organisms.
The Developmental Biology SIG provides a collegial forum for investigators interested in the underlying principles of development and how they relate to human development and disease. The group hosts Developmental Biology Workshops throughout the year that feature keynote speakers and presentations by post-doctoral fellows. Workshop sessions are arranged to facilitate interactions among presenters and attendees to promote discussion of research and solicit feedback on experimental observations. In addition, the SIG provides mentoring to trainees to encourage their professional development.
