January 21, 2015 - Nobel prize winner Prof John O'Keefe from UCL and Prof David Nutt of Imperial College are just two of the scientists joining Hello Bio to celebrate Bristol University's 10th Anniversary Opening of the Dorothy Hodgkin Building. Hello Bio is supporting a symposium showcasing some of the UK's most eminent and respected scientists.
Professor John O'Keefe (UCL) Laureate of The Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine 2014 is speaking on "The Journey to the Hippocampal Cognitive Maps" and Professor Nutt's talk is entitled "Time for the Neuroscientific Enlightenment?". They join an expert line-up that includes Bristol University organisers Professor Stafford Lightman, Professor Craig McArdle and Professor Kei Cho, who will be speaking on " A New Conceptual Understanding of Alzheimer's Disease". The symposium is expected to attract around 100 researchers working across many of Bristol University's departments.
The Dorothy Hodgkin Building first opened 10 years ago and is home to an internationally renowned multi-disciplinary research centre. This research centre includes the Henry Wellcome Laboratories for Integrative Neuroscience and Endocrinology (LINE) and the MRC Centre for Synaptic Plasticity. Researchers here focus on many areas of basic and translational neuroscience with an aim to developing an understanding and treatment of major neurological diseases including Alzheimer's disease and stress related psychiatric disease such as depression and neuroendocrine disease.
