The Quintay Course is a compressed version of the MBL’s renowned Embryology course, which has been held at the MBL every summer since 1893. Aimed at graduate students and postdoctoral fellows, the course provides state-of-the-art research training in developmental biology using embryos from a variety of organisms, from sea urchins to chicks.
