        In the past few years, the mechanisms and molecules which regulate
embryonic and post-embryonic development have been unraveled at an amazing
pace. The combination of powerful genetic screens carried out in flies and
worms, and the implementation of the findings to higher vertebrates have
revealed an amazingly conserved and universal set of signal transduction
pathways that regulate diverse developmental switches.
        The 1997 Jerusalem Spring workshop on Developmental Switches will
attempt to convey this excitement. Speakers who are leaders in their field,
will describe different model organisms including Drosophila, C. elegans,
Xenopus, Zebrafish, Chicken and mice. For each of these systems the latest
experimental results will be presented, and discussions on the overlaps,
advantages and problems of each model organism will take place.
        The workshop is intended for students at the graduate and post doc
level from Israel and abroad. Posters and short presentations by the
participants are also an integral part of the workshop.
APPLICATIONS: The Schol is intended for advanced graduates and
post-doctoral students. Registration fees: $220. Hotel accommodation: $270.
Some financial support is available for applicants upon request. Candidates
must send a C.V., an abstract of research interests & a letter of
recommendation. For application forms write to: The Jerusalem Spring
School, Institute for Advanced Studies, The Hebrew University of Jerusalem,
Givat Ram 91904, ISRAEL. Fax: 972-2-6523429. E-mail: advanc at vms.huji.ac.il
