Babraham Institute Neuroscience Journal Club

Babraham Institute Neuroscience Journal Club

Scientists at the Babraham Institute launch new Neuroscience Journal Club.

Dr Michael Coleman and Ms Handan Elaman will be hosting the first meeting of the Babraham Institute Neuroscience Journal Club on Wednesday 12th February, 12:30 – 14:00 in the Sir Brian Heap Seminar Room at the Babraham Research Campus.  Lunch will be provided from 12:30. The Neuroscience Journal Club is suitable for any academic or commercial scientist with relevant research interests.

Dr Coleman will present the first paper “Dynamics of Hippocampal Neurogenesis in Adult Humans” (Spalding et al., 2013; PubMed ID: 23746839), a topic that we hope will have wide appeal across the local neuroscience community. We hope to have an active discussion from all, but especially from those working on neural stem cells and neurodegeneration.

About the Babraham Institute:
The Babraham Institute undertakes world-class life sciences research to generate new knowledge of biological mechanisms underpinning ageing, development and the maintenance of health. Our research focuses on cellular signalling, gene regulation and the impact of epigenetic regulation at different stages of life. By determining how the body reacts to dietary and environmental stimuli and manages microbial and viral interactions, we aim to improve wellbeing and support healthier ageing. The Institute is strategically funded by the Biotechnology and Biological Sciences Research Council (BBSRC), part of UK Research and Innovation, through an Institute Core Capability Grant and also receives funding from other UK research councils, charitable foundations, the EU and medical charities.
The Biotechnology and Biological Sciences Research Council (BBSRC) is the UK funding agency for research in the life sciences. Sponsored by Government, BBSRC annually invests around £450 million in a wide range of research that makes a significant contribution to the quality of life for UK citizens and supports a number of important industrial stakeholders including the agriculture, food, chemical, health and well-being and pharmaceutical sectors. BBSRC carries out its mission by funding internationally competitive research, providing training in the biosciences, fostering opportunities for knowledge transfer and innovation and promoting interaction with the public and other stakeholders on issues of scientific interest in universities, centres and institutes.
