Theo Murphy International Meeting

Organised by Dr Shukry Habib and Dr Paula Alexandre, this meeting is taking place 14-15 November 2016 at Kavli Royal Society Centre, Chicheley Hall, Newport Pagnell, Buckinghamshire, MK16 9JJ.


Asymmetric Cell Division (ACD) produces two daughter cells with different fate. This process is implicated in the development of multicellular organisms and tissue maintenance during homeostasis and injury. This meeting will focus on the molecular mechanisms that regulate ACD and create a network amongst early-mid career scientists. The meeting will discuss unpublished data, future directions and the implications for human diseases.

Raman Microscopy Workshop, 23rd February 2016, Edinburgh.

To promote and facilitate the use of Raman Microscopy in Regenerative Medicine the UKRMP Niche Hub has organised a one-day workshop for Tuesday 23 February 2016 at the Scottish Centre for Regenerative Medicine (SCRM) building, based at Edinburgh Bioquarter, The University of Edinburgh.

The workshop will introduce Raman to the scientific community and exemplify how this technique is currently being applied to stem cell research in the UK. The aim of the event is to explore how to further the translation of Raman into Regenerative Medicine, by discussing hurdles and opportunities.

Our speakers are:

  • Dr Mads Bergholt (Imperial College London)
  • Dr Colin Campbell (University of Edinburgh)
  • Prof Karen Faulds (University of Strathclyde)
  • Prof Duncan Graham (University of Strathclyde)
  • Dr Sarah McAughtrie (University of Edinburgh)
  • Prof Ioan Notingher (University of Nottingham)

This is a great opportunity if you want to learn more about Raman and how you could use it for your research project. For event details and free registration please visit our Eventbrite page.
