The Collaborative Program in Developmental Biology (CPDB) brings together researchers from six different departments at the University of Toronto under the unifying theme of developmental biology. The CPDB held its Winter Symposium on February 19th, featuring talks from senior graduate students in the program spanning from planarian brain regeneration to breast cancer to vesicle trafficking. This year, four of the presentations were by Molecular Genetics students: Chikin Kuok (McNeill lab), David Brown (Pearson lab), Nandini Raghuram (Egan lab), and Monica Wu (Claycomb lab), who also had the honour of taking home the second place prize ($200) for her talk. As always, the Symposium was an inspiring day highlighting the importance of fostering collaborations and the amazing research at our University. Many thanks to the CPDB steering committee, especially Julie Brill and Cindy Todoroff, for all of their hard work coordinating the program and organizing the Symposium!
