The source event

The Source Event, now in its 3rd successful year, is a dedicated science career fair that combines a dynamic exhibition with conference and workshop sessions. The event will promote the UK and Europe as a great place to pursue a career in science, be it in industrial research, research organisations or academia. It will present the best opportunities from the best organisations: public, private, national and international.

Jobseekers will be able to meet with potential employers who are offering hundreds of genuine vacancies. Our plenary and workshop sessions will provide a unique opportunity to meet high profile scientists and gain careers information and advice.

The Source Event London will be held on 25th September at the Business Design Centre, London.

Journal Club Handout - Paul Smith, Novartis

Once again I would like to thank everyone who attended the meeting on 16th July, and please find below the handout form the talk by Paul Smith from Novartis.

Neural Stem Cells in Development and Disease

DATE: 7th - 10th February 2010
LOCATION: Wilton Park, Steyning, West Sussex, UK

This inter-disciplinary meeting brings together clinicians investigating cancers and developmental defects of the CNS and researchers working on the regulation of neural progenitor cells in invertebrate and vertebrate contexts.
We aim to define similarities/differences between cellular and molecular mechanisms regulating neural progenitor cells in developing, adult and cancerous tissue and to increase our understanding of how cancer stem cells and neural developmental defects arise
