Time: 14:00:00 - 18:00:00

This townhall is for all UCL researchers and professional service staff who would like to contribute to the development of draft 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 aim is to improve how we access, store, analyse, curate and share data used in research. Come and share your experiences and thoughts Please read strategy and share your thoughts via the online form or during the Townhall meeting

2 April, 2019 - Biomarkers in Neurodegenerative Diseases

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.
