Exciting Events at Edinburgh Neuroscience
Scottish TSE Network One-day Meeting: Examining the scientific basis of therapies for prion diseases
You are invited to attend the 12th Annual International STN meeting on Monday 25th November 2013 at The Roslin Institute, University of Edinburgh
Following successful meetings over the last 12 years, the Scottish TSE Network has this year broadened the context of discussion of protein misfolding diseases to include other degenerative conditions, in particular Alzheimer's Disease. This international meeting will explore the scientific basis of therapies for prion diseases and how these may apply to other degenerative conditions, providing the opportunity to hear internationally recognised scientists and find out more about very recent high profile papers in what we promise will be an interesting and thought provoking meeting. We attach a meeting poster and would be grateful if you could also distribute/display to your networks/colleagues. This meeting is open to all researchers (not just those in Scotland!)
Registration deadline: 11th November

Saturday 1st February 2014, Chancellor's Building, Little France, University of Edinburgh
Especially for undergraduates and newly-graduated students, this meeting was a huge success last year with students attending from across the UK. This is your opportunity to present the research work from your undergraduate or summer project (there are very few places you can do this!) and meet undergraduate/newly graduated neuroscience and medical students interested in neurology. With a full programme of talks and workshops and an essay poster competitions, there is something for everyone. Plus, with only a £10 registration fee, it's a meeting not to be missed.
Essay competition deadline: 10th January 2014
