Fourth MaRMN Annual Symposium (Feb 2020)
The Manchester Regenerative Medicine Network (MaRMN) Board cordially invites you and your research team to the Fourth MaRMN Annual Symposium which will be held on the afternoon of Thursday 6th February 2020 in the main lecture theatre and atrium of the Michael Smith Building from 12noon. The event is free, and includes refreshments, but you will need to register as soon as convenient to secure your place as these are limited.
The Plenary Lecture is: ‘Myelin Regeneration - Reversing the Ravages of Time’ will be given by Robin Franklin, Professor of Stem Cell Medicine, University of Cambridge.
At this point we request you:
1. Save the date in your diary.
2. Inform other members of your research team about the event and encourage attendance.
3. Register for the event through the following Eventbrite link: https://www.eventbrite.com/e/fourth-annual-marmn-symposium-2020-tickets-80886855763
4. Reserve a space where you and your team can present research by emailing: firstname.lastname@example.org (this will be on a first-come, first-served basis because poster spaces are also limited).
In due course, we will construct a full programme that will also include talks by several local Regenerative Medicine Investigators.
With best wishes,
The MARMN Board
Various Regenerative Medicine investigators
Prof Robin Franklin
Role: Professor of Stem Cell Medicine
Organisation: University of Cambridge
Biography: Robin Franklin is Professor of Stem Cell Medicine at the Wellcome Trust-MRC Cambridge Stem Cell Institute. His lab works on the mechanisms of CNS regeneration with a particular focus on remyelination, an adult stem/precursor cell-mediated process in which new myelin sheaths are restored to demyelinated axons. Using a wide range of in vitro and in vivo models, we are examining extrinsic (environmental) and intrinsic (transcriptional, epigenetic) factors that govern the differentiation of adult neural stem cells into oligodendrocytes and other glia following CNS injury. Robin Franklin is also Director of the MS Society Cambridge Centre for Myelin Repair, and a Fellow of the Academy of Medical Sciences
