Scottish constituency of the Spanish Society of Researchers in the UK (SRUK) mini-symposium: From food to babies: what CRISPR can do for you

As part of the V Anniversary Seminars of SRUK, the Scottish constituency will celebrate a mini-symposium entitled ‘From food to babies: what CRISPR can do for you’. Professor Francisco Martinez Mojica (University of Alicante), the discoverer of CRISPR, a key system used to modify genes, and other speakers, like Professor Bruce Whitelaw (Roslin Institute), will talk about the application of CRISPR in agriculture and biomedical research. The talks will be followed by a round table for discussion. Food and drink will be provided.

Besides, if you are a scientist who uses CRISPR and you want to present you work, there will also be a poster competition with a small prize for the best poster. Please save the date and keep an eye on the facebook page for following updates, including the final program.

We will finally hold a dinner at Edinburgh city centre (venue to be confirmed) for speakers and attendees (not included in the ticket).
