What is XRET?
Apart from the biennial International Xenopus conference there have been limited opportunities for Xenopus researchers to interact and discuss community events over the years. To provide greater opportunities for community discussions in alternate years, the NXR has hosted short PI meetings in 2011, 2013, 2015, and 2017. Many participants felt that the PI meetings were very valuable and we are therefore continuing these meetings at the MBL on alternate years to the International Conference. The meeting was expanded beyond just PIs and renamed Xenopus resources and Emerging Technologies Meeting

What is the goal of XRET?
The goal of the Xenopus Resources and Emerging Technologies Meeting is to provide an informal venue for discussions about new and upcoming technologies, establishing priorities for the community and allowing for more in depth discussions of individual research topics. We hope the meeting will enhance aspects relevant to the entire community and foster interactions among us. Strategic planning and advances in resources important to the community will be highlighted.

What is the format?
There will be short research talks as well as discussion groups focused on topics related to the Xenopus community. The meeting will kick off with a BBQ as in previous years.

Who should attend?
The XRET meeting is open to all Xenopus researchers, with particular emphasis on principal investigators and senior postdocs.

These meetings have become very interactive and exciting and I think this year’s meeting will be no different. I encourage all interested researchers to try and attend.

If you have any questions, please contact us at Xenopus@mbl.edu.
