Just a reminder that the BSTP’s 34th Annual Scientific Meeting will be held jointly with the British Toxicology Society (BTS) and will cover the topic of emergent epigenetic therapies.
Recently we have seen an explosion of discoveries related to the cellular regulation of phenotypes through epigenetic mechanisms. As epigenetic changes are reversible, this offers the potential for epigenetic therapies based on cellular reprogramming (e.g. cancer, neuro degenerative disease), with further opportunities in the detection of microRNAs (e.g. blood, exhaled air) and their use as diagnostic tools.
The BSTP and BTS are delighted to announce that five free places will be available for PhD students/residents working in the field of toxicology or toxicological pathology. Applications should be submitted by the 30th August 2019 to the President of the BSTP – Begonya Garcia - firstname.lastname@example.org for approval by a representative of the BSTP and BTS. The five approved applicants will be required to present a poster at the meeting and provide an article on the meeting (or their own research) to both societies for publication in their respective newsletters.
There are also reduced registration fees for Early Career Pathologists/Toxicologists and BSTP/BTS student members – if you aren’t sure whether you qualify please ask – email@example.com
Please highlight this meeting to your colleagues, students and researchers in your units.
