CITER Annual Scientific Meeting 2014: 

Basic Science to Regenerative Medicine 


Wednesday 17th & Thursday 18th September 2014

The Stradey Park Hotel, Furnace Llanelli, Carmarthenshire

This year’s Annual Scientific Meeting (ASM) will showcase research from CITER members and Cardiff University only. The ASM gives early career researchers and PhD students in particular an opportunity to present their research in a friendly and supportive environment and also network with colleagues from across the CITER network.

We look forward to welcoming our invited speakers:-
Keynote speaker Professor Yves Barde, Sêr Cymru Research Chair in Neurobiology, Cardiff University will be speaking on "Embryonic Stem Cells: A Uniquely Useful Discovery Tool in Neurobiology"

Yves Barde’s research interest focuses on neurotrophins, specifically Brain Derived Neurotrophic Factor (BDNF) and how it regulates not only the function, but also the growth of the adult brain. Professor Barde’s group is also interested in using small molecules diffusing into the brain with the goal of increasing BDNF levels so as to help preventing neuronal dysfunction. His laboratory extensively uses embryonic stem cells to generate neurons to investigate the roles of specific genes in neuronal dysfunction.

Plenary speaker Dr Tim Bowen, Institute of Molecular & Experimental Medicine, School of Medicine;
Plenary speaker Mr Chris Wilson, Orthopaedic Consultant, Cardiff and Vale University Health Board;
Plenary speaker Professor Anne Rosser, School of Biosciences and School of Medicine;
Plenary speaker Professor Rachel Errington, Institute of Cancer and Genetics, School of Medicine;
Plenary speaker Professor David Barrow, School of Engineering and
Plenary speaker Professor Arwyn T. Jones, School of Pharmacy and Pharmaceutical Sciences.
