OMH runs meetings and other events to help researchers share expertise and technical knowledge, with the aim of encouraging new interactions and collaborations.
Join us for a stimulating day of talks, discussions and networking at the OMH Inaugural Symposium on Monday 2 July 2018 in the Richard Doll Building, Old Road Campus.
During the morning session, the topics will span genetic variants through to molecular mechanisms and on to patients, populations and devices. The afternoon will focus on the interface between the immune system and metabolism. Confirmed speakers include Damian Tyler, Cecilia Lindgren, Fiona Powrie and Susie Dunachie. The programme will finish with keynote speaker Sir Steve O'Rahilly, Director of the University of Cambridge Metabolic Research Laboratories. As a researcher who has made outstanding contributions to understanding the molecular mechanisms underlying human disorders of energy balance and metabolism, his talk promises to be fascinating. The day will finish with a reception.
The programme includes poster sessions where student and postdocs/fellows will have the opportunity to present their research in poster format. Researchers are asked to submit poster abstracts by Monday 4 June, which will be reviewed and the top two selected for oral presentations at the symposium. On the day, we will also award prizes for the best student poster and the best postdoc/fellow (non-student) poster.
