Welcome to WntTalks
Welcome to WntTalks
Following the cancellation of the 2021 Wnt GRC meeting, we felt that it was important to get the Wnt community together and provide a platform for trainees and Wnt researchers to present their work.
The plan is to have online Zoom talks, for an initial series of ~6 bi-weekly sessions, starting on April 8, 2021 (see schedule below). If you are interested in giving a talk please submit your title and abstract to firstname.lastname@example.org.
The setup is similar in philosophy to the early Wnt meetings – prioritizing trainees and early career scientists presenting their work. There will be two talks per session, each talk allotted a total of 30 minutes (20 min talk and 10 min discussion).
Importantly, to accommodate the international nature of the community, each speaker will present TWICE within a 24-hour period (see schedule and time zones below). The fourth WntTalk session will be on Thursday June 3, 4PM and June 4th, 12 AM UTC (UTC time: http://www.timebie.com/std/utc.php). This allows an audience from Europe, Americas and Asia/Australia to join one or the other talk.
After the talks, participants are invited to mingle at our dedicated Wnt Talks space,
