25 February, 2016 - Lunch Hour Lectures: childhood maltreatment through the lens of neuroscience and epigenetics

Time: 13:15:00 - 13:55:00

Childhood maltreatment is a strong predictor of mental and physical ill health. How does such adversity 'get under the skin'? Latent vulnerability is one way of thinking about how maltreatment calibrates biological and neurocognitive systems, in ways that may be adaptive in the short-term but incur long-term costs.

29 February, 2016 - Self-care, shared care: rethinking the management of long-term conditions

Time: 14:00:00 - 18:00:00

With new technologies (patient-controlled electronic health records, unprecedented access to health information, wearables and sensors for monitoring, novel digital interventions, etc.) there are great new opportunities for prevention and for managing long-term conditions. There is also a financial push: as more becomes possible, it will be necessary to manage more care outside clinical settings, with people taking greater responsibility for their own and their families’ health. These changes present new challenges: in re-thinking the role of the patient, of their family and friends, of the clinician and the system of care, and in reviewing what is and should be possible using digital technologies. In this event, we will present ongoing research into digitally-enabled approaches to supporting self-care and shared care. Part of UCL's Festival for Digital Health.

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

Organised by UCL Division of Psychiatry

Speaker: Dr Dheeraj Rai Many more children are being diagnosed with autism today than ever before. It is still unclear what becomes of these children when they reach adulthood. What are their needs and how can services best support them? High quality longitudinal studies assessing the outcomes of autism are needed. In this talk I will discuss findings of cohort studies in Bristol and Stockholm addressing some questions related to social and mental health outcomes of autism

24 May, 2016 - Neuroscience Career Network: workshop on fellowship and grant interviews

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.
