This section contains regular seminars, conferences and free online trainings. These resources are only available in English. Registration is required in some cases. Some resources also have videos of past events available. While some of these resources are more related to developmental biology than others, we decided to include all aspects of biology so that you can broaden your horizons while respecting social distancing.

Ucam Morphogenesis Series
This is a weekly online seminar series on the topic of Morphogenesis by both international and local speakers. Speakers represent the diverse topics that make up morphogenesis, including biomechanics, cell and tissue level interactions, theoretical analyses and modelling.
Developmental biology webinar series
New webinar series showcasing the latest developmental biology and stem cell research. The webinars are chaired each month by a different Development Editor. First authors are particularly encouraged to present their work with the aim that the series will become a forum for supporting early-career researchers. As well as presentations and live Q&A sessions, you’ll also get the chance to meet the speakers and fellow participants at interactive virtual tables. The webinars will typically occur once a month and will be held in Remo, their browser-based conferencing platform.
Virtual Plant Science Talks par Plantae
Each week a well-recognized researcher in plant science and another nearer the beginning of their career give seminars to deliver a broad range of scientific topics, facilitate interesting discussions, and provide unique networking opportunities. These virtual events are free and open to all.
This series runs through GoToWebinar software, which allows to ask questions in a chat box. A selection of these questions will be moderated by the webinar chair. Each week, two speakers will present their research in 30-minute sessions.
SpiraliaBase virtual lab meetings
A recently formed coalition of scientists who study the largest and most diverse clade of animals alive, the Spiralia. They organize regular virtual lab meetings.
International Zebrafish Society Webinars
The International Zebrafish Society (IZFS) launched the IZFS Webinar Series. The series includes a variety of research and professional development topics. The content of the webinars is designed for researchers from every career level and to share the latest scientific findings, methods, technologies, and products to facilitate research. The format provides direct access to experts in the field in an interactive online setting. Webinar registration is free to all IZFS members.
Vertebrate Gastrulation Zoom Talks
Gastrulation is a topic that occupies a central place in developmental biology and, in the context if vertebrates, is on the the threshold of a renaissance. You can follow details of the series on Twitter. Attendance requires registration which can be done here. Registration will lead to further information about the talks.
EVBO Webinar series
The European Vascular Biology Organisation’s mission is to provide visibility and networking opportunities for vascular biologists in order to promote a vibrant and diverse community to generate research excellence.
World Wide Neuro Development
This seminar series covers anything dealing with brain development and evo-devo related questions. From the sources of neuronal diversity to wiring of function-specific circuits, from drosophila to humans, from genes to synapses, in vivo or in vitro, health or disease, it’s all in there for you to watch, question, and get inspired by!
Blood and Bone Seminar
This webinar series was created in a time of chaos to bring a bit of routine into Blood reserachers’ life, to learn about the awesome work of scientists from around the globe, and to build community.
Fragile Nucleosome is a new online discussion group for scientists interested in chromatin and gene regulation. Fragile Nucleosome is active in two spaces: one is the Discord server where several hundred scientists chat informally, the other is the organization of weekly virtual seminars on Zoom.
QMUL Epigenetics promotes interactions between different research groups at Queen Mary University in London studying the role of epigenetic mechanisms in fundamental biological processes and disease pathogenesis. In addition, they aim to increase the visibility of the work within QMUL and outside in the form of regular interlaboratory meetings, public communication and awareness activities.
World Wide Physics of Life
Les Virtual Events in Physics of Life visent à nourrir une communauté internationale de chercheurs intéressés par la mesure, la modélisation et la théorie des systèmes vivants à l’échelle moléculaire, cellulaire, neurale, de l’organisme, collective et écosystémique.
BPPB Virtual Seminars
The objective of BP / PB (Physical Biology / Biological Physics) seminars is to keep abreast of what is happening in biophysics outside our specific fields and above all, to introduce young researchers to the exciting possibilities of research in biophysics. You can follow the schedule on Twitter.
Meiosis in Quarantine
The Meiosis in Quarantine webinar series is currently scheduled until July 30. There will be 4 speakers per session, with 15 minutes per presentation and 10 minutes for questions.
France BioImaging Annual Meeting
For this edition, the meeting will be organized as a two-half days virtual meeting (from 9:00AM to 1PM) on February 4th & 5th 2021. This event, open to all members of the bioimaging community, aims to provide a platform to discuss pivotal subject matters in the field. The 2021 program of the France BioImaging Annual meeting is built around two pillars:
February 4th: “Building and operating an integrated and open infrastructure for bioimaging“
February 5th: “Latest and future developments in biological imaging“
Cell Bio Virtual 2020
60th Annual Meeting of the American Society of Cell Biology (ASCB) in conjunction with the European Molecular Biology Organisation (EMBO). From 2nd-16th December 2020. Free regristration for ASCB and EMBO members.
11th Curie course - Developmental Biology
Institut Curie and Sorbonne Université (SU) organize their 11th International Developmental Biology course: ‘From Stem Cells to Morphogenesis’. Courses will be available online. Registration is compulsory.
MBL Virtual Programs
These free events are part of the MVP (MBL Virtual Programs) webinar series. This virtual series will run from July 6-17 and include offerings from many of our summer programs including the advanced research training courses and the Logan Science Journalism program. We are very excited to reconnect with our friends and colleagues, learn from distinguished speakers, and engage in lively scientific discussion. Webinars will also be recorded and available for viewing at a later date.
