5 May, 2016 - The Civil Society Project: What went wrong?

Time: 18:15:00 - 19:30:00

Organised by UCL Political Science

NGOs/nonprofits are supposed to be a crucial pillar of democracy. Scholars view NGOs as principled and trustworthy actors, representing the grassroots, and articulating the voices of the people. Yet, the civil society project is under challenge. While they were once considered to be trustworthy and exempt from transparency demands, NGOs are now being held to accountability standards commonly expected from governments and firms.

It reviews the current knowledge base for action, for engagement and empowerment of young people around their health, and considers the policy and legal frameworks for adolescent health and wellbeing. Professor Russell Viner from the UCL Institute of Child Health is hosting the launch as one of the four leaders of the Commission, along with colleagues from the University of Melbourne, Columbia University and the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine.

11 May, 2016 - Inflammation and Immunity in Schizophrenia and Depression: from mechanisms towards therapeutics

Time: 16:00:00 - 17:00:00

Organised by UCL Division of Psychiatry

Speaker: Dr Golam Khandaker- A possible role of immune system in the pathogenesis of major mental disorders such as psychosis was postulated over a century ago with recent evidence pointing to links with infection and inflammation. The first half of this talk will discuss evidence from recent clinical epidemiological and genetic studies implicating infection and elevated circulating inflammatory markers in the pathogenesis of depression and schizophrenia, including recent findings from the ALSPAC and other birth cohorts. The second half will focus on clinical implications of these findings and include novel meta-analytic evidence on effectiveness of immuno-therapies for schizophrenia and depression.

Time: 11:00:00 - 12:30:00

Have you ever wondered how research can inform policy decisions? Are you unsure of the best routes for engagement with public policy? Do you want to know more about when and how to communicate research to policymakers? Up Close and Policy sessions offer the chance to hear from UCL academics and policymakers on their experience of academic-policy engagement, the insights they have gained, and what they consider the key lessons for successful engagement. On 16 May, Up Close and Policy will bring together senior UCL academic Professor Susan Michie and external policymaker Andrew Black from the Department of Health to discuss their experience of academic-policy interaction. They’ll offer their views on the complexities of policy engagement and answer your questions on opportunities and pitfalls.

19 May, 2016 - Ecological time machine

Time: 17:00:00 - 18:00:00

Organised by UCL Geography

Palaeoecology uses plant remains preserved in lake sediments to reconstruct ecological change over thousands of years. Sediments are natural data- loggers; they are the only way to obtain empirical information relevant for understanding long-term ecological dynamics and offer unique insights into environmental systems that cannot be achieved using ‘standard’ ecological research methods. Thus, the 'ecological time machine' is a vital tool to aid understanding of the factors responsible for ecosystem change. Drawing examples from his own work and others, Alistair will present his own perspective of how the information extracted from sediments can be used to improve understanding of a range of key ecological processes. Second, he will consider how key components of the Ecological Time Machine (e.g. the methods used to extract information from sediments) can be further developed to improve reconstructions and any associated ecological inferences.

Time: 13:00:00 - 16:00:00

Workshop chairs: Prof Elizabeth Fisher & Prof Giampietro Schiavo. Are you in the process of applying to or have just submitted your application for a Neuroscience fellowship or grant which involves an interview? As grants and fellowships are one of the most important requirements for a successful career in Neuroscience, we are organising a workshop for the final phase of that process: the interview. The workshop consists of 5 participants (postdocs or PIs) in the process of applying for grants or fellowships and who therefore will have written a proposal beforehand (short proposals have to be sent to the panel ten days before the workshop for preparation). Each participant will start with a short presentation to the panel members, consisting of the other participants and Prof Fisher and Prof Schiavo, followed by 10-15 minutes questioning. In the remaining 10-15 minutes the panel will give feedback. Video recordings will be provided for feedback on aspects of the presentation.

3 June, 2016 - Neural Plasticity Workshop: Insights from Deafness and Language

Time: -

During infancy, there are discrete periods during which the brain has an enhanced capacity for reorganisation in response to environmental inputs: the ‘sensitive’ periods of brain plasticity. Traditionally, it has been thought that reorganisation after a sensitive period is not possible. However, recent research has shown that plasticity is a property of both the developing and adult brain, and that functional recovery after the close of sensitive periods is possible. Integrating animal and human models, and insights from the study of deafness and language, in this workshop we will discuss mechanisms of brain plasticity throughout the lifespan, its impact on perception and cognition, and the current and future applications for functional adaptation. This is a free event but you need to register in advance via the link below
