We are continually developing our programme, seeking to provide sessions covering a variety of subjects by speakers who enjoy working with an audience that can be relied upon to ask many questions. Please use the comment form to let us know if you would like to lead a session for us.

Whatever have glial cells done for us?
January 18th 2021 @ 7:30 pm
Prof Nick Dale, Ted Pridgeon Professor of Neuroscience, School of Life Sciences University of Warwick.
Nick studies chemical signalling in the central nervous system, with particular interests in: developing biosensor technologies to measure neurotransmitter release in real time, the control of breathing, the control of body weight and application of biosensors to clinical diagnosis of ischaemic pathologies. His research has led to identification of important roles for specialised glial cells in the control of breathing, and the control of food intake.
