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 epigenetics in toxicology and pathology.
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 there are still free places available for stipendiary students studying a relevant pathology or toxicology project, or pathology and/or toxicology residents/trainees/early career pathologists/toxicologists. Applications to be submitted by midnight on 13th October 2019 to the BSTP President – Begonya Garcia - email@example.com for approval by a representative of the BSTP and BTS. The five approved applicants will be required to provide a short article on the meeting (or their own research) to both societies for publication in their respective newsletters or present a poster at the meeting.
In addition (if not already a member of the BSTP), successful candidates will be invited to join the society and will receive a year’s free membership of the BSTP worth £60.
Applications will be assessed by representatives from the BSTP and BTS on merit.
Successful applicants will be notified before 20th October 2019.
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 – firstname.lastname@example.org
Please feel free to highlight this meeting to your colleagues, students and researchers in your units.
