Postdoc Symposium "The Journey from Genes to Disease", Oxford, UK

  • Medical Sciences Teaching Centre Oxford UK (map)

As postdocs we are under increasing pressure to succeed, and facing the challenge to move on to tenured employment can lead us down many diverse paths. In order to have a competitive advantage we need to build networks with other researchers within and increasingly outwith our chosen field of research.

The Journey from Genes to Disease is a free one day symposium, held in central Oxford and organised by the Postdoctoral Training Fellows at MRC Harwell Institute. The theme is the influence of genetics and genetic regulation in modelling human disease – from molecular through cellular to whole animal level and encompassing developmental, environmental and behavioural interactions.
