Regeneration Next Co-Director Dr. Dave Sherwood has been appointed as one of the new co-directors for the Embryology Course at the Marine Biological Laboratory at Woods Hole, Massachusetts. The course is an intensive six-week laboratory and lecture format for advanced graduate students, postdoctoral fellows, and more senior researchers who seek a broad and balanced view of the modern issues of developmental biology. Along with University of California-San Francisco’s Dr. Rich Schneider, Dave will co-lead the course six weeks each summer for the next five years.
The Woods Hole Embryology course was founded in 1893 and has been going strong for over 120 years— before the digital age, through both world wars, and the turn of two new centuries! It is the oldest lab course in the United States and is world renowned. Well over half of the students are from other countries. Dave says, “It’s a huge honor for me to be appointed as a co-director, and it further elevates Duke’s reputation as a leader in developmental biology.”
