Event description

Description

We are delighted to present Queen Mary University of London's all day ‘Biology Meets Physics Symposium’. This will be a truly multidisciplinary event that reaches across world leading research at Queen Mary's Material Research Institute; The Institute of Bioengineering; the School of Biological and Chemical Sciences & Barts and The London School of Medicine and Dentistry. This research event takes place in the historic People’s Palace inside the beautiful Grade II listed Great Hall, a recently refurbished 1930s art-deco theatre in London’s buzzing Mile End.

The keynote speaker is Professor John O'Keefe (Nobel Prize winner in Physiology/Medicine 2014) and his talk is entiteldThe hippocampus as a cognitive map: an update (Chair is Professor Yang Hao). He will be joined by several other scientific disruptors. Professor John O'Keefe is Director of the Sainsbury Wellcome Centre for Neural Circuits and Behaviour and Professor of Cognitive Neuroscience in the Department of Cell Developmental Biology at UCL. He was awarded the 2014 Nobel Prize in Physiology/Medicine for the discovery of cells that constitute a positioning system in the brain - an 'inner GPS' - that enables us to orient ourselves.

Please note that registration is almost full!
