The regional conference was started in 1967, by Arthur Whiteley, a UW Biology Professor, continued for nearly 30 years by Lynn Riddifiord (UW Biology) with a Developmental Biology Training Grant from NIH, and has been continued by the Seattle Developmental Biology Group since then.Read more »
Come to FHL for our annual Open House!
This free public event offers a splendid opportunity to meet scientists and students at the Labs and to check out the research and teaching facilities.
This coming weekend is the annual Science & Poetry Workshop– a general symposium of like-and-various-minded souls who’ll gather for presentations, readings, impromptu convivialities, field excursions, and maybe an occasional trickle of wine, just to earn the symposial rubric?Read more »
