The call for abstracts is now open for the first Queen Mary University of London (QMUL) Life Sciences conference on ‘Population Health in a Post-Genomic Era’ (15 and 16 December 2014) at the new Royal London Dental Hospital Education Academy, on our Whitechapel campus in London.
The conference is part of a new interdisciplinary initiative in Life Sciences, details of which can be found at the end of this email or on our website: http://www.qmul.ac.uk/lifesciences/
The ethos for the ‘Population Health in a Post-Genomic Era’ conference will be exploration of the capacity, constraints and utility of using the data which are becoming increasingly readily available on both an individual’s genome and now post-genomic information (proteome, metabolome etc), perhaps in combination with information about their physical and social environment, to make inferences about their susceptibility to diseases and disorders and/or their response to treatment regimes.
We have a series of high-profile plenary speakers at this event representing each of the four research domains that we have identified as being important in this endeavour (Society, Population and Environment; Computational Biology; Basic Biomedical Science and Translational Biomedical Science).
Confirmed external speakers include:
- Susan Lea – University of Oxford
- Tim Hubbard – Genomics England
- Anne Kerr – University of Leeds
- Philippe Sanseau – GSK
- Tim Spector – Kings College London
- Douglas Kell – University of Manchester
