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 wnttalks@gmail.com.

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). For this first online talk, the speakers will present both 8 April 8 am and 8 April 11:00 pm (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,
