New for 2020, we are delighted to be holding 4 co-sponsored themed interdisciplinary symposia, there is also an open theme. We already have partners for two of our themes which will co-chair the meeting and co-review the abstracts:
- Infectious diseases – into the Future
- Diagnosis by DNA – in partnership with the Biochemical Society
- Big Data in Clinical Research – in partnership with Health Data Research UK
- New Targets in Cellular Metabolism – in partnership with Nature Medicine
- Open Theme
The Biochemical Society, and its wholly-owned subsidiary, Portland Press Limited (PPL), work to open up biochemistry, facilitating the sharing of expertise, supporting the advancement of molecular biology, and raising awareness of their importance in addressing societal grand challenges. We achieve our mission by supporting the biosciences community, enabling the circulation of scientific information through meetings, publications and public engagement to support innovation, inform decision-making and develop better understanding.
Health Data Research UK is the national institute for health data science. Its mission is to unite the UK’s health data to enable discoveries that improve people’s lives. By working in partnership with the NHS, industry, academia and patients, and providing safe and secure access to rich health data, it aims to better understand diseases and discover new ways to prevent, treat and cure them.
Health Data Research UK is funded by UK Research and Innovation, the Medical Research Council, the British Heart Foundation, the National Institute for Health Research, the Economic and Social Research Council, the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council, Health and Care Research Wales, Health and Social Care Research and Development Division (Public Health Agency, Northern Ireland), Chief Scientist Office of the Scottish Government Health and Social Care Directorates, and Wellcome.
Nature Medicine publishes research that addresses the needs and goals of contemporary medicine. We are a monthly journal publishing original peer-reviewed research in all areas of medicine on the basis of its originality, timeliness, interdisciplinary interest and impact on improving human health. We have a keen interest in new concepts in human biology and disease pathogenesis to robust preclinical bases for new therapeutic modalities and drug development to all phases of clinical work, as well as innovative technologies aimed at improving human health. In addition, we publish commissioned content aimed at contextualizing the latest advances in translational and clinical research to reach a wide audience of M.D. and Ph.D. readers.
