*** APRIL 2021 ***

In the run-up to the second V4SDB meeting to be held at Szeged ( we have established a collaboration with two MDPI journals, Life and the Journal of Developmental Biology. These two titles will each run a Special Issue (SI) dedicated to the meeting and all registered participants in the meeting will be eligible for publication discounts (200 CHF for papers published in Life and 800 CHF for those published in the Journal of Developmental Biology).
As you are probably aware, the V4SDB was established in 2018 to provide an improved local visibility for developmental biology in our region and to act as an amplifier for the results of its many developmental biologists. We believe that our partnership with Life/JDB SI will provide an excellent conduit to help us to achieve this goal by highlighting some of the results that will be presented at our forthcoming meeting (needless to say, we also welcome contributions from all of our international colleagues to this SI.)
