Scottish Biomedical Postdoctoral Researcher Conference

Friday June 2nd 2017 – Sir Charles Wilson Building at the University Of Glasgow

SBPRC is an initiative of post-doctoral societies at both the Beatson Institute (Glasgow) and the Institute of Genetics and Molecular Medicine (Edinburgh). This one-day event aims to provide focused presentations to meet the needs of postdoctoral researchers, and to promote new collaborations between research groups throughout Scotland. This year, hosted by the University of Glasgow, the day will consist of two main sessions: research in progress and career development. We encourage researchers to submit abstracts, six of which will be selected for short talks. Abstract topics include, but are not limited to,

• Cancer, Genetic and Metabolic Disorders
• Neurobiology and Neurological Disorders
• Stem cells, Development and Regenerative Medicine
• Immunity, Infection and Inflammation
• Chromatin, Gene expression and Genetics
• Cell Signalling and Signal Transduction
• Genomics, Proteomics, Metabolomics and Systems Biology
• Translational Biology, Drug Discovery and Clinical Studies
• Novel Techniques and In-vivo Imaging
• Bioengineering and Mathematical Modelling

There will be poster presentations to stimulate discussion and networking events throughout the day. This event and future symposia are envisaged as a unique networking platform for postdocs belonging to diverse areas of biomedical sciences from institutions across Scotland.
