March 3rd, 2016: Meet the Expert Dr Michel Milinkovitch on "The EvoDevo & physics of skin appendages and skin colours in vertebrates”

Added Wednesday 9 December 2015
Dear BEE PhD students and members,

here is the information about the first Expert who received a majority of votes from the doctoral school for 2015-2016:

Prof. Michel Milinkovitch will come at UCL (Belgium) on Thursday, 3rd of March 2016, 14:00-16:00 to discuss with you all “The EvoDevo & physics of skin appendages and skin colours in vertebrates”. More practical information will be available in February, but you can already book the date and prepare the discussion with Dr Millinkovitch by reading the following advised papers (list below). MOre Experts as well as several 1-week trainings are currently organised by the doctoral School for 2016, so check the website regularly!


All the best,


Caroline Nieberding andf Camille Turlure.
