On Thursday 9 June, The Physiological Society hosted an early career networking event to support Affiliates wishing to meet each other and senior members of The Society. The event also included a series of talks providing an insight into some key skills such as public engagement and networking.
The programme will include talks on CRISPR, but also showing the utility of techniques such as ZFNs and Talens. As well as editing, the use of these techniques to regulate gene expression will be explored both in the context of studying normal physiology and the mechanisms of disease. The use of the techniques in engineering cells and animals will be explored, as will techniques to deliver edited reagents and edited cells in vivo.
H3 Symposium - Gene Editing and Gene Regulation with CRISPR
The scientific program of this pioneering conference has been designed to provide an up to date introduction to the Zika virus from a medical and geographical point of view.
The main goal of the planned conference is to gather experts on several facets of the current epidemic of Zika virus.
The Conference will allow a fruitful interaction between public health professionals, epidemiologists, virologists, entomologists, physicians and representatives of institutions involved in diagnostics, vaccines and vector control.
The current speed at which novel high-throughput technologies are developed and large-scale biological data are produced offers tremendous opportunities for enhancing our molecular understanding of biological systems.
The processes of life are naturally dynamic in space and time from the atomic to the organismal level. The rapid development of imaging methods across this full scale of biological organisation is revolutionising our ability to visualise the inner workings of proteins, protein complexes, organelles, cells, tissues, organs and whole organisms.
There are vacanies available for Co-Leads of the Education and Teaching Theme. With usually 2 leads guiding the activities of the Theme, these individuals will play a key role in supporting The Society's Higher Education activities, providing an opportunity to make a positive contribution and build your own profile within the teaching community.
