Established in 1893, the MBL's Embryology course offers integrated lectures and laboratories that comprehensively cover the paradigms, problems, and technologies of modern developmental biology cast within a comparative framework of metazoan evolution. Students in the 2022 Embryology Advanced Research Training Course arrived in Woods Hole on June 5 and have already captured some amazing microscopy images.
