FBS/FMH Inaugural Research Symposium

We are delighted to invite you to the joint inaugural FBS/FMH research symposium, which will take place on Monday 26th March 2018. The purposes of the symposium are to showcase the many successful collaborative links that already exist between the two Faculties, but to also foster new collaborative ventures between researchers at all levels, from PhD students to senior academics. In this first symposium, we have chosen speakers that will focus on topical methodologies and technologies that are broadly applicable to colleagues throughout the Faculties, and that will stimulate both debate and collaboration. Ellen Hewitt (Research and Innovation Development Manager- Faculty of Biological Sciences) and Dani Battle (Research and Innovation Development Officer (Health)) will be present at the event with information and advice about new grant calls and potential collaborative opportunities. We have chosen three themes to explore: atomic, molecular and cellular biology; uses of ‘omics technology and Big Data; and translational aspects in model and system approaches. Further details are in the attached outline of the day. The venue for talks will be the Rupert Beckett Lecture Theatre, which is in the Michael Sadler Building on the main campus of the University of Leeds. Poster sessions and lunch will be in the Parkinson Court, opposite the Michael Sadler. A map of these venues is available here: and Please register to attend the symposium at this Eventbrite link: because the numbers are limited at the venue and we anticipate the symposium to be popular. We hope that you will be able to join us at this exciting new venture between the Faculties, and look forward to a stimulating and enjoyable symposium.
