Join Neuroscience @ Nottingham for a poster and lecture day. Posters will be on show from 2pm, and at 4pm Professor Paul Harrison, University of Oxford will speak on the topic of ‘Recent advances in schizophrenia genetics and their implications’.
This talk will explore how much of this science fiction has, or will, become fact. Where does the future lie with genetics and what does this mean for us and the next generations? Do we have a voice and opinion in how these technologies are used and does this voice come out through literature? Can we control the technology and what regulations are in place? Will humans benefit from genomics? Did a book written 2000 years ago really hint at epigenetics?
In this lecture, Sean May, School of Biosciences, will explore the evolution of genetic engineering technology. Part of the Popular Culture Lecture Series.
It’s poster and lecture day for Neuroscience@Nottingham on Wednesday 14 January from 2-5pm. Professor Thomas Nichols, from the University of Warwick, gives a lecture on ‘Modelling genetic variation in the brain with multivariate and mass univariate approaches’ from 4-5pm.
