Event Details

The Reproduction and Development domain encompasses a broad area covering fertilisation,  implantation, embryogenesis, fetal and neonatal development and maternal-fetal interactions at basic science and clinical translational levels. Research areas range from child health population studies to the developmental biology of birth defects and include disease states of major organs and tissues affecting the child’s early life and adolescence as well as gynaecological cancers. We are extremely well placed at UCL to utilise the latest technologies such as next generation sequencing to explore the genome, epigenome and transcriptome along with proteomics and metabolomics methodologies. The first aim of this domain would be to bring together researchers from across the SLMS from basic scientists to clinical researchers to establish collaborative partnerships that span all disciplines that fit this domain. As a group we will not only profile our research successes but also mentor each other to submit better programme grants to both national and international calls.
