I was fortunate to have attended the Embryology course at MBL Woods Hole in 2017. It was one of my most transformative experiences.

To have a quick glimpse of the time there, you can go to the link summarising #embryo2017 on Twitter, where I tweeted with other students about the course.

A post will published soon, dedicated to my experience there. Stay tuned!
