The UK DRI Friday Forum is a bi-weekly series featuring informal workshops/presentations/Q&A/discussions on various topics ranging from grant writing, research translation to hot science!


ECR Monthly Meeting (May)

These monthly informal meetings allow UK DRI Early Career Researchers to troubleshoot their research, find new collaborators, and help us all stay in touch and up to date with each other’s work. During each session two or three ECRs will give short (~15 min) presentations followed by time for questions and suggestions. This month we hear from:

  • “An outlook on the use of synthetic RNA aptamers to target FET proteins in ALS and FTD” – Daniel Jutzi (King’s)
  • “Microglial Transcriptional Networks and Polygenic Risk for Alzheimer’s Disease" – Cerys Ballard (Cardiff) 
  • "Investigating proteomic and transcriptomic differences in Alzheimer’s disease – a pilot project" – Martha Foiani (UCL)


Thursday 21 May, 12:00 - 13:00 BST

This event is open to UK DRI researchers and support staff only. Registration and associated Zoom links will be distributed via Centre Manager emails nearer the time of the event.
