Conferences

The following is a list of conferences which I have attended throughout my time at the MOAC Doctoral Training Centre. The MOAC DTC is in close collaboration with other interdisciplinary doctoral training centres throughout the UK, particularly the Chemical Biology Centre (CBC) at Imperial College, London, and we organise a number of opportunities to meet up with our fellow interdisciplinary researchers.


First ever MOAC annual conference, held in Cardigan Bay, South Wales.

Second MOAC annual conference, held in Snowdon, North Wales. Poster (Powerpoint Presentation) DTC meetup with Imperial College's Chemical Biology Center, held at Imperial College in London. Students from the two DTCs were invited to prepare a poster and a presentation for the event: Poster (Powerpoint Presentation)
Presentation (Powerpoint Presentation) Systems biology and genomics conference, organised by the Consortium for Post-Genomic Science. Delegates were invited to prepare posters for the event: Poster (Powerpoint Presentation) Third MOAC annual conference, held in Penbrokeshire, South Wales. 5th annual conference for users of Affymetrix microarray technologies, held at the John Innes Centre in Norwich. Delegates were invited to prepare a poster for the event, and prizes were awarded for "best scientific content" and for "best looking poster". This year, my poster was awarded the prize for "best scientific content": Poster (Powerpoint Presentation) The first EPSRC sponsored annual meeting for members of interdisciplinary doctoral training centres throughout the UK. Hosted by the Life Science Interface ( LSI) Doctoral Training Centre, and held at St. Anne's College, Oxford.
  • EPSRC DTC Conference, 16th - 17th April 2007

EPSRC Doctoral Training Centre student conference, held at the University of Warwick.

     Presentation (Powerpoint Presentation) 

    Fourth MOAC annual conference, held in Langdale in the Lake District.
    • Biology Symposium, May 2007

    All third year PhD students on the MOAC course are expected to give a presentation at the annual Symposium for their respective departments. This year, I gave a presentation at the annual Biology Symposium, which won a prize as one of the top presentations at the event.   Presentation (Powerpoint Presentation)
    • UKAffy 6, June 2007, Dublin

    6th annual conference for users of Affymetrix microarray technologies, held at the Conway Institute of Biomolecular and Biomedical Research at the University College Dublin. I presented my work at this conference, concentrating specifically on data quality control and analysis using linear models. The presentation can be downloaded below:
    Presentation (Powerpoint Presentation)
    The 17th EASD Islet Study Group Symposium, taking place at the Hotel Bedford in Brussels on September 21-23, 2007, as a satellite symposium to the 43rd EASD Annual Meeting in Amsterdam on September 17-21, 2007. The meeting will cover 5 main topics:
    1) Islet protein expression and degradation
    2) Secretory granule biogenesis and exocytosis
    3) Islet pathophysiology in diabetes
    4) beta-cell growth and survival
    5) beta-cell development/regeneration.
     
    I presented my work, analysing the effects of Exendin 4 (Exenatide) on the apoptotic pancreas phenotype after c-MycER TAM activation.
     
    I was invited to present my work, specifically my software package Glimmer (working title only), at the Agilent Bioinformatics and User's Meeting to be held in the Hotel Spreebogen in Berlin. This conference allowed me to promote my software package to GeneSpring users.
    I have been invited to present my work, particularly discussing treatment of small volumes of RNA in microarray studies and real time PCR.
