May 20: One-day symposium celebrating Don Moerman’s career and retirement!

To the International Worm Community –

We are pleased to announce that we will hold a one-day symposium on May 20th, 2022, 8:50 am-5:40 pm (PDT), celebrating Dr. Don Moerman’s retirement. 

Don has made an enormous contribution to the C. elegans research community by leading a knock-out consortium, Million Mutation Project, among other things.

We have a spectacular list of invited speakers who have a long-term scientific relationship with Don. 

The symposium is a hybrid event held at the Life Sciences Institute, University of British Columbia. 

Please join us online via the following live streaming link.

We will take Q&A from the live-streaming audience using A code will be announced at the event.

(Please be reminded that we may not be able to take questions from Slido due to time constraints.)

FEBS Junior Sections initiative

Students and young researchers from some of the national Societies have created the ‘FEBS Junior Sections‘, an initiative to connect young scientists in the molecular life sciences across Europe. They organise online events and the next one is a talk on C. elegans.

FEBS Junior Sections/Young NVBMB invite you to an online talk on “Elucidating the molecular mechanisms of protein aggregation in C. elegans as a living model system”. 

Time: 10 March 2022, 19:00 (CET) 


The recorded webinar for the above event is now available for viewing.
