The meeting organisers are Dr. Marina Campione and Prof. Cristina Basso, University of Padova.
The 2017 meeting of the Working Group on Development, Anatomy and Pathology will be held in Padua, Northern Italy.
Padua is one of the oldest Universities in the world (founded in 1222). Its botanical gardens are an UNESCO World Heritage Site and the Giotto frescos in Scrovegni Chapel are very special indeed. The scientific program and history of Padua, coupled with modern Italian hospitality and style makes this a meeting not to be missed.
The Working Group will award the Pexieder prize for the best oral presentation during the meeting.
This award had been named in tribute to Tomas Pexieder, founder and first Co-Chairman of the Working Group on Development Anatomy and Pathology, formerly named "Embryology and Teratology".
All submitted abstracts will be automatically entered for these prizes.
The Padua Meeting will award travelling expenses up to five PhD-students and/or Junior Post-Docs (within 3 years after their PhD).
Applicant must be registered member of the Working Group (if not member yet, you can still join for free now)
Reimbursement is processed after the meeting and awardees may claim travel expenses via the ESC website with a maximum cash prize of 400 Euro. In the case of a no-show or lack of data presented at the meeting, the travel expense claim will not be processed.
