Time: 14:30:00 - 17:30:00

A special exhibition of research and innovation for patients and the public will see three floors of University College Hospital accommodate 50 interactive stalls where researchers will demonstrate the latest technology and techniques tackling conditions such as cancer, dementia and arthritis. Visitors will have the chance to put on headphones and try a cochlear implant simulator; have a 3D scan of their face; find out their hand hygiene levels; extract DNA from strawberries in addition to many other activities. Visitors will also have the opportunity win an iPad mini and tour some of the trust’s state-of-the art facilities, bookable on the day.

6 July, 2016 - Grantsmanship mentoring for early career researchers

Time: 09:30:00 - 12:30:00

At this mentoring workshop, early career researchers will get the chance to present and receive feedback on a two-page outline grant or fellowship proposal. On the day, early career researchers will also deliver a 3 min presentation. Senior academic mentors will then ask questions about the proposal and provide constructive feedback. The mentoring sessions will run for 3 hours and early career researchers will be able to sit in throughout in order that they can learn from their peers and vice versa. Early career researchers will submit their proposal two weeks in advance, which will then be passed on to senior academic mentors. There are only 12 places on the mentoring workshop, your place will be reserved once you have sent your two page research proposal to r.aldridge@ucl.ac.uk.

13 July, 2016 - New developments in understanding and treatment of eating disorders

Time: 16:00:00 - 17:00:00

Organised by UCL Division of Psychiatry

Speaker: Professor Ulrike Schmidt -The need for early intervention in the treatment of eating disorders is widely recognised, as more engrained eating disorders are more difficult to treat. Whilst effective treatment exists for bulimia nervosa, and for children and adolescents with anorexia nervosa, treatment for adults with anorexia remains a major challenge. Recent advances in understanding the neurobiological underpinnings of eating disorders, are opening up the possibility of creating more targeted “precision treatments“. In this talk, I will present data on novel approaches, mainly to the treatment of anorexia nervosa, from talking therapies to neuromodulation.
