Neurological Disorders: from molecules to medicine

The Council House, Bristol, May 14th 2009

From Molecules to Medicine gives young researchers the opportunity to showcase their work and share their experiences. This conference is for all early career scientists working in a related field and those who attend will be able to present a poster/oral communication.

This one-day symposium will showcase some of the most exciting recent advances in understanding the underlying causes in neuropathology, as well as the pioneering modern treatments of selected brain disorders. One of the main themes of the symposium will be to show how an etiology of a disorder ranges through the four disciplines of biochemistry, genetics, physiology and pharmacology.

  1. How do genetic dispositions lead to physiological defects in disorders
    such as Alzheimer's?
  2. Which biochemical processes underpin them and how does this lead to the use of pharmacological tools as medicine?

Submissions are encouraged from all four disciplines.

The conference is FREE and lunch will be provided, but you must register to attend the symposium. To register and for more information please click here.

There will also be an evening social event with limited places.

Abstract submissions are now open! Go to for further details and to submit your abstract.

This year the symposium incorporates the new-look Promega UK Young Life Scientist Awards, which boasts:

  1. a total prize fund of up to £7,000
  2. £2,000 cash for the winner
  3. plus £2,000 worth of Promega products for their research lab!
