UK-ISR Conference on Precision Medicine and Ageing

UK-ISR Conference on Precision Medicine and Ageing

British Council Israel and the UK Science and Innovation Network (SIN) are hosting the Joint Conference on Precision Medicine and Ageing, taking place at King’s College London from Monday 3 September to Tuesday 4 September 2018.

This academic conference represents one of the British Council’s priority areas of scientific research in Israel for the coming years, and it will be attended by researchers from the UK and Israel.

What are the objectives?

The Scientific Committee has designed the conference with two main objectives:

  • To provide a platform for scientists involved in Precision Medicine and Ageing to share ideas and best practice that could help address the current scientific and clinical developments.
  • To establish and strengthen scientific partnerships between leading British and Israeli researchers, including links that could translate into submissions to the next bilateral BIRAX Ageing Call that will focus on Ageing (including Precision Medicine).

What will the conference consist of?

The interdisciplinary programme will consist of plenary lectures, as well as opportunities to network and hold informal discussions with other participants. Speakers and delegates from a wide variety of fields will bring added value to the discussions taking place.

Publication

We are pleased to announce our partnership with Elsevier’s Journal, Experimental Gerontology and who will have Special Issue dedicated to our meeting. Speakers and early career researchers presenting at the conference will be invited to submit abstracts, original research and reviews. The Special Issue will be published early 2019 and there will be more details to follow.
