  • Title:  A Chemical Imbalance:  film screening and discussion
  • When:  Friday 7 March 2014
  • Time:  3.30 - 5 pm
  • Location:  Swann Lecture Theatre, The King's Buildings, University of Edinburgh

The University of Edinburgh’s female scientists started their campaign for equality with street riots in the 1870s. Today, an Edinburgh professor is the first female president of the Royal Society of Chemistry. This short documentary film, "A Chemical Imbalance", celebrates how much has been achieved, and explores factors that contribute to the continued under-representation of women in STEM subjects. 

Short talks and a chaired discussion with panelists:

  • Title:  Neuroimmune Interactions in CNS Health and Degeneration - 1 day symposium
  • When:  Tuesday 25 February 2014

  • Location:  Roslin Institute, University of Edinburgh, Easter Bush
  • Abstract deadline: Friday 24 January 2014
  • Registration deadline: Thursday 20 February 2014

This meeting will bring together leading researchers from the UK working on the role of neuroimmune interactions in normal brain function, ageing, neurodegeneration and neural repair.  Recent advances in knowledge will be highlighted and emerging models and techniques for studying neuroimmune biology will be discussed.

The meeting will include a range of talks and poster sessions and will include time for discussion among attendees.

In association with Public Health England and Barts and the London School of Medicine and Dentistry, RSTMH is organising Topics in Infection again this year.  

We have a limited number of places remaining for what we are sure will be a fascinating and valuable meeting.  As always, this meeting will provide an important and valued opportunity for colleagues within all fields of tropical medicine and global health to network, update knowledge and share scientific expertise and will attract over 300 microbiologists, consultants in infectious disease, general physicians, infection control nurses and biomedical and clinical scientists.

Edinburgh research and Innovation will be hosting a series of workshops to assist candidates preparing ERC Starting Grant applications, details are outlined below.
 
Workshop 1

Due to high demand the Edinburgh hosted UK National Contact Point ERC Starting Grant Proposal Writing Event on 14 January 2014 is now full. We are therefore running another workshop on Friday 17 January. The workshop will offer a general overview of the programme, application and submission process.  Those interested in submitting an application to the first deadline on 25 March 2014 can sign up to attend this workshop via MyEd (link above)

Workshop 2

  • When:  Wednesday 15 January 2014
  • Time:  2.30 - 8.15 pm
  • Location:  Lecture theatre 1, Appleton Tower, George Square

At this symposium a cross section of staff and Fellows present their most recent research across the spectrum of activity in the Institutes of Evolutionary Biology, Immunology and Infection Research and the Centre for Immunity, Infection and Evolution.  There is a particular emphasis on interdisciplinary approaches and communication across disciplines, which we believe makes the talks particularly accessible.

This event is free and no registration is required.  We strongly encourage you to attend and hope very much that you will be able to attend at least part of it, particularly if you are new in Ashworth. 


Chair - Alex Rowe


2.30 - 3.00 pm              

Paul Sharp: “Origins of human malaria: where and when?”
