31 July, 2017 - CBC Summer School: Behaviour Change – Principles and Practice

Time: -

UCL’s Centre for Behaviour Change are hosting their 4th annual Summer School series again this year. This five-day course will introduce you to the principles of behaviour change and how these can be applied to practical problems in your own area of interest. It's aimed at everyone interested in behaviour change - from researchers, practitioners and intervention designers to managers and policy makers. The course will look at the principles of behaviour change and demonstrate how these can be applied to a variety of practical problems - from supporting change among patients and health professionals, to planning and supporting change in organisations and communities. It will give you: • a greater understanding of the possibilities for applying behaviour change interventions to your own situation; • a practical framework for developing, implementing and evaluating these interventions in your area of interest.

22 September, 2017 - 2017 Annual Synaptopathies Symposium

Time: -

The symposium is funded by a Wellcome Trust Strategic Award entitled "Synaptopathies: genetics, biophysics and circuit mechanisms of paroxysmal neurological disorders". Epilepsy, migraine and related paroxysmal neurological disorders affect over 15% of the population, and account for an enormous burden to the individual and to society. Progress in managing these diseases is slow, with many patients failing to respond to available medication. Understanding the mechanisms will be an essential step not only towards improved diagnosis, but also towards the development of rational therapies. *This event is open to principal investigators, postdoctoral researchers and PhD students. A limited number of places will be made available to MSc students.*

1 November, 2017 - Inequalities: Evidence from longitudinal studies

Time: 09:00:00 - 17:00:00

Inequalities continue to plague all areas of society, from education and income, to health and life expectancy. Successive governments and decades of policy initiatives have targeted the unequal life chances across communities, countries and generations. But why do these disparities persist? And who faces the greatest risks? The UK’s longitudinal studies are leading sources of evidence on life course and intergenerational inequality. CLOSER’s 2017 conference seeks to bring together researchers from across disciplines to showcase longitudinal research’s contribution to our understanding of inequalities. The conference is an opportunity to share ideas and innovations with longitudinal researchers from across disciplines and sectors, both from the UK and abroad. It will also showcase the latest resources for research, including CLOSER Discovery – a search engine that allows researchers to explore the content of eight leading UK longitudinal studies in unprecedented detail.
