On October 14th and 15th, 2019, several of the McDonnell Initiative team leaders presented their work at the 2nd annual meeting of the PhilInBioMed International Network, held at the University of Bordeaux in France. Germ Line Regeneration team leaders, Drs. Kate MacCord and Duygu Özpolat, spoke on “Germ Line Regeneration in Metazoans.” Dr. Lucie Laplane, co-leader of the Stem Cell Regeneration group (with Michel Vervoort), delivered a talk entitled, “PhiLabo: Philosophy ‘by other means.'” Both of the McDonnell Initiative talks highlighted the importance of integrating scientific practice into the philosophy of science, and vice versa. Prof. Jane Maienschein also chaired a session. The third annual meeting of the PhilInBioMed International Network will take place at Arizona State University in fall 2020.
