The Domains encompass the breadth of research activity across the School of Life and Medical Sciences within nine core groupings.
Tuesday 4 June 2013 - The Science of Health and Wellbeing
4.00 - 5.45pm, Members’ Dining Room, House of Commons,
London, SW1A 0AA
The Parliamentary Office of Science and Technology is hosting this interactive exhibition in collaboration with several leading public sector bodies that fund research in the UK, including the MRC. The reception will provide an excellent opportunity for UCL research staff to network with parliamentarians and fellow researchers.
Short presentations from a distinguished panel will highlight the value of science in improving public health and wellbeing by providing high quality evidence to inform policy-making. Guests are invited to explore the exhibits accompanied by afternoon tea in the Members’ Dining room.
Thursday 13 June 2013 - UCL Research IT Services Annual Community Forum
12.15 - 7.30pm, Sir Ambrose Fleming Lecture Theatre (G06), UCL Roberts Engineering Building, Malet Place, London, WC1E 7JE
The UCL Research IT Services Department develops, delivers and operates services to assist UCL researchers in meeting their objectives at each stage of the research lifecycle. This event will be of interest to any researcher who needs to use software, cluster computers, generates more than 1 terabyte of data, and/or uses a research application.

21-22 June 2013 - Exercise Medicine
Society Of Medicine, 1 Wimpole Street, London, W1G 0AE
Physical inactivity causes more premature deaths than smoking. There is overwhelming evidence that low physical activity is the major contributor to non-communicable diseases, and increasing evidence that sedentary behaviour is a separate but equally important risk factor that needs to be addressed.
This two day international conference will bring together experts, leaders and innovators working in exercise medicine to discuss their latest research. Delegates will leave the conference with an increased understanding of how to encourage physical activity within their communities, and help beat the biggest public health issue of our time.

Friday 28 June 2013 - Annual CLMS Symposium 2013
9.00 - 6.30pm, Wilkins Gustave Tuck Lecture Theatre, UCL Wilkins Building, Gower Street, London, WC1E 6BT
This one day symposium will showcase the role of information technology, including computer and computational sciences, across the broad range of life and medical (basic and clinical) sciences. The diverse programme will help to highlight researchers across UCL, UCL Partners and the Crick, and the breadth of multi-disciplinary research currently being undertaken in the fields of computational life and medical sciences. It will also illustrate the value of collaboration across these fields.
