This year’s Young Life Scientists’ symposium will bring together members of the Biochemical Society, British Pharmacological Society and Physiological Society. The symposium will focus on the regulation of musculoskeletal health during ageing and disease and potential nutritional, pharmacological and exercise interventions to delay the onset of age-related and/or disease-related muscle loss.
During this free symposium, three keynote speakers will discuss their latest research advances. There will be oral communications and posters presentations from PhD students and early career researchers from selected abstract submissions. Additionally, workshops aimed at grant success and life beyond a PhD will be scheduled. Throughout the day, plenty of breaks will be provided to allow networking and scientific outreach to take place. Towards the end of the event, prizes will be awarded to the best ranked oral and poster presentation which will be rounded off with a closing meal, providing a final chance to engage with current and future leaders of the field.
Our keynote speakers are renowned in their respective fields and will be giving a series of fascinating talks. They include:
