29 September, 2016 - The Data Dialogue: When research crosses borders

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

In an increasingly globalised world, research is reaching beyond geographical borders, raising questions on the methods, laws, and possibilities in moving or sharing data internationally. As the volume and type of data we create becomes more varied, sensitive, and complex, we need to ask: what are our own responsibilities as professional researchers collecting data overseas? Who is ultimately accountable for data produced with foreign partners? What happens when national laws and policy differ dramatically? May strategies be usefully shared within or across disciplines? We are pleased to invite Early Career Researchers, Academics, and Support Staff to research projects with an international sharing focus. Join us at The University of Oxford to hear from key speakers from the UK’s international research landscape and join a discussion amongst peers with tangible experience in accessing, sharing, and managing data across borders.

Location: Jesus College, Turl St , Oxford , OX13DW

12 October, 2016 - UCL RoAR (Replacement of Animals in Research) Forum

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

We are delighted to announce RoAR (Replacement of Animals in Research) - the UCL forum for promoting innovative, cross-disciplinary technologies to replace animals in research, within the 3Rs initiatives at UCL. RoAR's mission • Serve as a platform for collaborations across diverse UCL groups, including Biosciences, Engineering and Computational Biology, for creative approaches to alternative technologies • Foster relationships with NC3Rs, grant awarding bodies and UK Industry. • Maintain awareness and highlight achievements, within the 3R UCL initiatives. This will be our first cross-disciplinary workshop for staff from across SLMS and BEAMS. This forum is your chance to see the progress being made, exchange ideas with colleagues and help make real progress in the replacement of Animals in Research. The event is free to attend but advance registration in essential. NB: the event is open to UCL staff and researchers from SLMS and BEAMS only, from post-doc upwards.

3 November, 2016 - UCL Ageing Event – cultivating research connections across the University

Time: 13:30:00 - 18:00:00

This is a half-day event aimed primarily at UCL staff from postdoctoral research associates to senior lecturers who work on ageing research in a wide variety of disciplines, including epidemiology, bioscience, neuroscience, engineering, economics and infection and immunity. UCL has significant strength in ageing research, however, key researchers at UCL that work on ageing are unfamiliar with other scientists who work in different age-related disciplines. This is a missed opportunity, especially given the increased focus on lifelong health and wellbeing in the Government’s current priorities for research funding. The purpose of this meeting is therefore to enable more junior UCL researchers working on all aspects of ageing to network and to encourage new collaborations.

7 November, 2016 - Save the date - UCL Personalised Medicine Early Careers Network launch event

Time: -

Save the date for the official launch of the UCL Personalised Medicine Early Career Network. Eminent speakers, including Professor Sir Munir Pirmohamed (Wolfson Centre for Personalised Medicine) and Professor Stephan Beck (UCL Cancer Institute) will present their work in personalised medicine, and give an insight into the direction they believe the field is moving in. There will also be presentations from early career researchers, refreshment breaks and a networking drinks reception, which will provide substantive networking opportunities for you and your colleagues. Through bringing a wide range of researchers together we aim to encourage new cross-disciplinary links and collaborations between scientists and clinicians at the forefront of personalised medicine research. More details will follow shortly, but in the meantime please do try and save the date for what is sure to be a fascinating day.
