ELRIG Networking event: New Targets & Modalities in Fibrosis
Wednesday 18th September 2019: Time 5.30pm – 8pm (registration from 5pm)
86-88 Jubilee Avenue
What are researchers doing to support patients with fibrosis? What novel targets and modalities are being explored and how are we testing them? To find out more about the complex biology of fibrosis and how collaborative working is supporting innovation in this area come join us at this ELRIG meeting.
You will hear speakers from across academia, biotech and the pharma industry offering their unique insights. The event is free to attend and will be followed by the opportunity to network over food and drinks.
Professor Jagdeep Nanchahal (Kennedy institute)
“Localized fibrosis in humans – target identification to validation in clinical trials”
Professor Nicolas Barnes (Celentyx)
“Regulation of the fibrotic response by serotonergic and purinergic pathways”
Dr Breda Twomey (UCB)
“Human fibrosis in vitro model systems that can be applied to drug discovery”
Our networking events, follow the model of short, informal presentations by guest speakers from academia and industry which encourage and foster collaboration and opportunities between local research groups. The presentations are always followed by a food and drinks reception to facilitate further networking.
We believe that through enhanced collaboration between scientists from academia, pharma / biotech and the technology industry, we can offer the opportunity to create a truly unique and open forum, engaging researchers in a beneficial manner and within a local geographical environment.
