• LIH Research Development Seminar – 25th January 2017

    Professor Paul Squires from the School of Life Sciences will lead the next LIH Research Development Seminar entitled, Conversations between cells, tissues and research groups: it’s good to talk

    Wednesday 25th January 2017

    12pm-2pm*

    Minerva Building,  Room MB3203

    My area of interest is in diabetes and our research examines how cells interact with each other in health and disease.  The Group studies cell-to-cell contact, cell-cell coupling and cell-to-cell communication in pancreatic islets, where the conversation between multiple cell types is essential for efficient insulin secretion, and in cells of the diabetic kidney, where a loss in appropriate cell-cell or cell-substrate contact underlies progression of disease. By examining the way cells cooperate to ensure appropriate function, we can learn a lot about the benefits of collaboration within an interdisciplinary team. These types of conversations underpin a healthy research culture that the Molecular Basis of Disease Group would like to explore within the LIH

    The LIH extends a warm welcome to all interested in this exciting area.

    *12-1pm presentation with Q&A

    1-2pm optional discussion and action planning
