The Nogent Institute

Cover legend

A recent photo of the Institut d'Embryologie Cellulaire et Moleculaire du Collège de France et du CNRS, situated in the Bois de Vincennes, near Nogent-sur-Marne in the south of Paris (France), together with images of Etienne Wolff, who founded the Institute in 1955, and its present director, Nicole Le Douarin. The background, a mosaic which is located at the entrance of the Institute, was elaborated by Nelly Vandel in 1958 and represents an artistic vision of a chick embryo following 3 days of incubation. A newly hatched chick carrying a quail wing grafted at embryonic day 4 appears in the "O" of "Biology" in the journal title. For further information about the history of the Nogent Institute, see the articles by Galperin (pp. 79-83) and Le Douarin (pp. 85-103) in this issue. Cover design by Sophie Gournet together with UBC Press.
