Sally Moody, PhD, chair of the Department of Anatomy and Cell Biology and professor of anatomy and cell biology at the George Washington University School of Medicine and Health Sciences, recently earned the unique opportunity to take part in an international course in developmental biology in Chile.

The Marine Biological Laboratory Practical Course on Developmental Biology in Quintay, Chile, a laboratory and lecture course for graduate students and post-doctoral fellows, provides research training in developmental biology using embryos from a variety of organisms.

Moody used the opportunity to share her knowledge of Xenopus, a genus of aquatic frogs, with the students. During the course, Moody demonstrated how to do different manipulations of the animal model, gave lectures on the history of the use of Xenopus in developmental biology and developmental genetics, and showed the students how to use the animal for the various experiments in the lab.
