30 September, 2014 - Clinical Prize Lecture 2014: From the bed to the bench and back – musings by a peripatetic clinical scientist on various aspects of innate immunity and Crohn’s disease

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

This annual prize lecture series has been running for 18 years but within this short space of time has rapidly become the pre-eminent series on contemporary science in Europe. The whole event, which provides an opportunity to debate and celebrate important scientific advancements, has always been very stimulating and hugely enjoyable. This year the Prize Lecture will be given by Professor Tony Segal. Professor Segal has held the Charles Dent Chair of Medicine at UCL since 1986 and is a Consultant Physician at University College Hospital. He is a Fellow of the Royal Society and a founding Fellow of the Academy of Medical Sciences. Professor Segal has spent his academic life conducting research into the ways in which white blood cells kill microbes, as well as investigating the primary causes of human diseases; aspects of this odyssey will be covered in his address.

6 October, 2014 - Research Councils UK Roadshow

Time: -

From September all seven Research Councils will be using Researchfish for the collection of information on the outcomes of Research Council funded research. Dates for roadshows on the new harmonised collection service are now available. Previously researchers funded by AHRC, BBSRC, EPSRC, ESRC and NERC returned information via a system called ROS (Research Outcomes System) whilst only researchers funded by STFC and MRC returned information via Researchfish. A roadshow on the new harmonised collection service has now been arranged near UCL, on Monday 6 October at the Hilton London Euston. The roadshow is free of charge and open to all researchers, research managers and research administrators. It is anticipated that there will be separate morning and afternoon sessions (depending on numbers) and will be an opportunity to find out about RCUK plans for research outcomes and ask any questions you may have.

14 October, 2014 - Lunch Hour Lecture: The powerful effect of placebo

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

Placebos have been a component of healing since the beginning of medicine. Today, placebo response remains enigmatic and elicits mixed attitudes from diverse disciplines. This presentation will discuss the implications of placebo effect for patients, clinical researchers and regulators.

24 November, 2014 - UCL Infection, Immunology and Inflammation Symposium 2014

Time: 09:00:00 - 18:00:00

This year’s UCL III Symposium will feature an array of eminent speakers from across UCL who will be presenting their ground-breaking work, much of which is changing our understanding of fundamental disease processes and clinical approaches to disease identification and management. There will also be an interactive debate session, as well as talks by Professor Sir John Tooke (UCL Vice-Provost (Health)) and Professor Michael Arthur (UCL President and Provost). Furthermore, following on from the success of last year, an abstract competition for early career researchers in both the basic and clinical sciences will be held. The deadline for submitting abstracts is Thursday 9 October. More information about the competition can be found on the Eventbrite page (see link below). Through bringing a wide range of researchers together we aim to encourage interaction and collaboration across the whole of UCL and our partner organisations.

4 December, 2014 - Lunch Hour Lectures: Can big data attack heart disease?

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

How can the data collected in hospitals be used to help improve quality of care? What benefits might come from linking health record data with genomic data? And how can we build public trust in the research uses of health data? Professor Hemingway will discuss these using the example of cardiovascular diseases.
