Registration Reminder: Molecular Genetics of Development

Although NICHD's conference on the Molecular Genetics of Human Development is almost a half year away, organizers are urging intramural researchers to send their registration forms in early if they want to be ensured a place at the popular meeting. That advice should not be taken lightly since NICHD's 1994 conference on the same topic was oversubscribed. The registration deadline for this year's conference, which is scheduled for May 1-4 at Airlie House in Airlie, Va., is Feb. 4. Requests will be filled on a first-come, first-served basis. The cost for room and board, based on double occupancy, is $420. In addition to an array of developmental experts from NICHD, this year's speakers include David Anderson of the California Institute of Technology in Pasadena, Juan Botas of Baylor College of Medicine in Houston, Linda Buck of Harvard Medical School in Boston, Mario Capecchi of the University of Utah in Salt Lake City, Victor Corces of Johns Hopkins University in Baltimore, Eddy De Robertis of UCLA School of Medicine in Los Angeles, Peter Gruss of the Max Planck Institute for Biophysical Chemistry in Gottingen, Germany, Marnie Halpern of the Carnegie Institute in Baltimore, Matthias Hammerschmidt of Harvard University in Cambridge, Mass., Alexandra Joyner of NYU Medical Center in New York, Chris Kintner of the Salk Institute in San Diego, Ruth Lehman of the Whitehead Institute for Biomedical Research in Cambridge, Mass., Robin Lovell-Badge of the Medical Research Council in London, Randal Moon of the University of Washington in Seattle, Don Riddle of the University of Missouri in Columbia, and Janet Rossant of the Samuel Lunenfeld Research Institute in Toronto.
