Special Issue "Women in Developmental Biology"

The research communities in many areas of biology are actively seeking to promote the career progression of women to promote gender balance amongst senior scientists. As developmental biologists, we are already fortunate to belong to a community with many outstanding female researchers, who have driven the field forward for many decades by providing knowledge, leadership and vision. The continued presence of eminent female researchers in the field of developmental biology has promoted a research environment in which a new generation of young scientists embraces gender equality, international exchange and collaboration.
To celebrate the achievements of women in developmental biology research, this Special Issue of the Journal of Developmental Biology will feature a collection of articles from female investigators who are either already established in senior positions, are in the process of establishing their own research groups or are still in academic training. Contributions to this issue can be submitted as original research papers or reviews, and they may span any topic of developmental biology.
We look forward to receiving your contributions!
Prof. Christiana Ruhrberg
