3 August, 2018 - Symposium: Our Life in an Ageing Society – How the young generation solves various problems associated with ageing

Time: 13:00:00 - 20:00:00

The society of ageing populations presents various challenges globally and to all generations. Japan’s experience as such a society, with the world’s highest life expectancy and its great need for solutions, exemplifies the urgency of the problem. As UK organisations also recognise challenges and opportunities of the ageing society, Japan and the UK are actively cooperating and having discussions on this subject. As a part of such UK-Japan interaction, UCL-Japan Youth Challenge organises this symposium in collaboration with Osaka University. Experts who are tackling the ageing issue in various fields will present their work. Topics encompass biological/medical science, engineering and social science, including ageing biology, nutrition, dementia, policy design, healthcare facilities, electronic devices, energy/resource and ageing communities. This event will be followed by a reception at the UCL Wilkins Building, South Cloisters (18:00-20:00).

Location: XLG2 Auditorium , Christopher Ingold Building, 20 Gordon Street, London, WC1H 0AJ

3 September, 2018 - Harnessing FAIR Data

Time: 13:00:00 - 17:00:00

Harnessing FAIR Data focuses on researchers who employ or are seeking to use data in their work. FAIR is a set of guiding principles to make data Findable, Accessible, Interoperable, and Reusable. In this thematic context we aim to better understand the cross-disciplinary practice of sourcing, using and managing data and its associated implications, such as ownership, standards and metadata, and access and licensing. Experienced speakers from around the UK will come together to explore FAIR data and services, and a panel session will help to identify key questions that researchers face when considering using data in research. This event is hosted by QMUL, UCL and the SES Consortium. We are pleased to confirm our keynote speaker, Prof. Pam Thomas from the University of Warwick. Other speakers and panel members include Dr. Paul Ayris (UCL), Dr. Charles Romain (Imperial College London), Andrew Lane (King's College London) and Prof. Henry Rzepa (Imperial College London).

Time: 09:00:00 - 17:30:00

Weizmann UK are hosting a two-day Systems Biology Symposium at University College London. The aim is to bring together an interdisciplinary group of leading world scientists from the Weizmann Institute with those from the UK to look at some of the common motifs of how complex biological system are organised. The symposium will focus on emerging systems design principles in the exploration of cancer, neurosciences, host-pathogen interactions and cell biology. Attendance will be limited to 180 delegates. Registration is £100 or £50 for students. This includes lunch and refreshments. This meeting will be an exciting and slightly out-of-the ordinary occasion so do make sure to book your place early to avoid disappointment.

13 September, 2018 - UCLPartners Centre for Neurorehabilitation Seminar: Motor recovery after stroke: conceptual puzzle, practical challenge

Time: 17:30:00 - 18:30:00

Speaker: Professor John Krakauer (The Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine, Baltimore, MD, USA) Followed by refreshments. No registration required – please just come along. About this lecture: Basic science in animal models suggests a way forward for human neurorehabilitation: higher doses and intensities of therapy, especially early after stroke. But what should the therapy consist of and how should we measure its efficacy?

14 September, 2018 - UCL Annual Synaptopathies Symposium 2018

Time: 08:25:00 - 19:00:00

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.*

17 October, 2018 - UCL Division of Psychiatry: The computational anatomy of psychosis

Time: 15:00:00 - 16:00:00

Speaker: Professor Karl J. Friston, Institute of Neurology, UCL Abstract: This talk considers formal or computational approaches to psychopathology. I will use schizophrenia to offer a case study of computational psychiatry. We first review the basic phenomenology and pathophysiological theories of schizophrenia. These motivate the choice of a formal or computational framework within which to understand the symptoms and signs of schizophrenia; particularly, in terms of false beliefs or inference. This framework is the Bayesian brain. We will focus on the (neuromodulatory) encoding of uncertainty or precision within predictive coding implementations of active inference – to demonstrate computational approaches to the nature and pathogenesis of hallucinations and delusions.

2 April, 2019 - Biomarkers in Neurodegenerative Diseases

Time: 12:00:00 - 17:00:00

The inaugural Biomarkers in neurodegenerative iseases course took place April 2018 at the University of Gothenburg. We are pleased to announce that the course will be held in 2019 in Queen Square as an exciting UCL/University of Gothenburg (UGot) collaboration. Aimed at PhD level and beyond, this detailed and comprehensive 4 day course will feature leading names in biomarker research including Profs. William Jagust (University of California Berkeley), John Hardy (UCL), Henrik Zetterberg (UCL/UGot), Kaj Blennow (UGot) and Nick Fox (UCL). We look forward to welcoming delegates from around the world for this unique educational and networking opportunity. Biomarkers are increasingly required for effective research into neurodegenerative diseases. They are critical for diagnosis, disease monitoring and will be key for measuring target engagement of disease modifying therapies.
