Time: 14:00:00 - 17:00:00

Interactive workshops chaired by: Sophie Scott and Jonathan Ashmore. 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 itself. The workshops consist of 5 participants made up of postdocs and principal investigators who have written a grant proposal or fellowship application before (short proposals have to be sent to the panel ten days before the workshop for question preparation). Each participant will start with a 5 minute presentation before the committee, consisting of the other participants and professor Sophie Scott and professor Jonathan Ashmore, followed by 10-15 minutes questioning.

13 November, 2014 - British Pharmacological Society President’s Lecture: New Medicines: A vital, but risky, business

Time: 18:00:00 - 20:00:00

Speaker information: Dr Patrick Vallance, President of Pharmaceutical R&D at GlaxoSmithKline. Host: British Pharmacological Society. Summary: Medicines change medicine. History shows us that the biggest improvements in healthcare are thanks to new medicines and vaccines: HIV infection changed rapidly from a death sentence to become a chronic but manageable disease for those able to access medicines; the development of increasingly effective chemotherapy means the outlook for many people diagnosed with cancer is dramatically different now from what it was even ten years ago; and the advent of new medicines is improving the care offered to people with dementia. Tickets are £5 per person, including tea/coffee on arrival and a reception for attendees following the lecture. http://www.bps.ac.uk/meetings/President_Lecture
