Last week, my colleague Karen Crow and I hosted two amazing speakers from the Max Planck Institute of Molecular Cell Biology and Genetics in Dresden, Germany.
Caren Norden talked about “Using zebrafish retinal development as a model to understand the interplay of cell biology and mechanics during morphogenesis: From cells to tissue”
Nadine Vastenhouw talked about “The role of chromatin in repression and activation of the zygotic genome”
We invited colleagues and students from the Biology Department and provided lunch for everyone. There were around 70 people, most of them students.
The talks were great! Thanks, Nadine and Caren for visiting SF State!
