Álvaro Tavares, CBMR researcher, will be one of the invited speakers at the Neptune Evo Devo Symposium 2016.
The Neptune Evo Devo Symposium is organised by the Neptune Network students, a Marie Curie-funded European project with focus on evo-devo and neurobiology of marine animal models. During four years, the network has gathered students and PIs from nine laboratories across Europe, as well as external partners, in a variety of successful meetings and courses.
This symposium will focus on two important aspects of animal evolution: evolution of the nervous system and evolution of body plans. In line with Neptune’s core interest, emphasis will be put on marine organisms, though not exclusively, and on recent technologies which are becoming increasingly suitable for use in non-model organisms enabling broader comparative studies.
