23 January, 2019 - UCL Data Strategy Townhall

Time: 02:00:00 - 17:00:00

This townhall meeting is for all UCL researchers and professional service staff who would like to contribute to the development of UCL research data strategy. Our vision is for UCL to create an environment that enables researchers to flourish using data. Our definition of research data includes external data created in a non-research context which is used as the starting point for research and data generated during the research process. The data could be open, or contain commercial, sensitive or personal details. It is also possible to contribute online.

23 January, 2019 - UCL Institute of Ophthalmology “Get to know…Visual Function & Integrative Epidemiology” seminar series

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

Gus Gazzard, Moorfields Eye Hospital NHS Foundation Trust and UCL Institute of Ophthalmology. “Trials & Tribulations - Research into Practice" - The LiGHT trial is a large NIHR -HTA funded randomised controlled trial with a sister study in China. I shall discus the route to funding, running and carrying out the study and the challenges faced in doing so with a summary of what we found and what we can learn for the route from science to patients. And Adam Dubis, Moorfields Eye Hospital NHS Foundation Trust and UCL Institute of Ophthalmology. "Insights into visual function from cellular imaging" - Modern technology has allowed us to visualise an ever increasing number of retinal cells in vivo. This now gives us the opportunity to not only visualise these cells, but begin to test their function. In this talk I will discuss several of these evolving techniques and possible applications.

24 January, 2019 - Intro to PPI: what can PPI do for you?

Time: 14:30:00 - 16:30:00

This session is for anyone new to PPI. Learn what patient and public involvement is all about, and how it can help your research. Pick up some of the basics of incorporating patient involvement into your work. The National Institute for Health Research University College London Hospitals Biomedical Research Centre in partnership with UCLPartners is running a programme of regular award-winning workshops for clinical academic researchers on patient and public involvement (PPI) in research. The workshops, which are supported by the Wellcome Trust and open to researchers working in UCLPartners partnership organisations, are practical and the aim is to build up researchers’ skills in effectively involving lay people in the research process, from setting research priorities to designing protocols.

25 January, 2019 - Ear Institute: External Seminar

Time: 13:00:00 - 14:00:00

Speaker: Johannes Dahmen, University of Oxford. Title: “Contextual influences on neural processing in auditory cortex, thalamus and midbrain of the mouse”. Classically, auditory perception is thought to rely on the flow of information from the sensory periphery via a sequence of hierarchically organised brain structures up to the cortex. However, perception is also highly dependent on the context in which a given stimulus occurs such as input from other sensory modalities, stimulus history and an animal’s actions, intentions and expectations. In the lab we combine transsynaptic tracing, electrophysiology, two-photon calcium imaging, optogenetics and behavioural analysis to a) document how such contextual variables affect processing in the auditory system and b) reveal the circuits that give rise to these effects. I aim to share the results from three ongoing projects focussing on the auditory cortex, thalamus and midbrain of the mouse. Host: Jen Linden (j.linden@ucl.ac.uk)

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.
