OMH runs meetings and other events to help researchers share expertise and knowledge, with the aim of encouraging new interactions and collaborations.

OMH Symposium 2019

Registration now open! 

Following our successful inaugural symposium in 2018, the second annual OMH Symposium will be held at the Medical Sciences teaching Centre, South Parks Road, on Monday 1 July 2019. We will be showcasing a diverse range of world-leading research from across Oxford on topics including circadian physiology, cancer metabolism and diet and metabolic health. There will be plenty of opportunity for researchers to network and build new connections. We are delighted that John O'Neill (LMB, Cambridge) will be giving the keynote lecture (see his recent work on 'How eating feeds into the body clock')   

Postdocs and students are invited to share their research at our poster sessions, in a poster summary 'lightning talks' session, and also have the chance to be selected to present their work in a short talk. Please send in an abstract by Monday 10 June. Abstracts for posters presented elsewhere or for new work are welcome. Further details about how to submit an abstract are available here
