Title to be confirmed - will be on thrombosis


On Friday morning 23 February there will be a workshop 'Advances in -Omics technology'. Click here for more information.


We would particularly encourage researchers to come with their teams and collaborators to present their cross disciplinary work. The meeting will take a similar structure to previous years, starting on Friday through to Saturday lunch time, with keynote lectures from international experts, oral and poster presentations. In addition, a workshop on cutting edge technologies will precede the meeting on Friday morning. The Friday evening networking dinners have been great fun over the past years and will clearly remain a vital aspect of the meeting.
