London Glia Symposium

The London Glia Symposium will emphasise a wide range of glia research carried out in London and UK to facilitate interdisciplinary collaboration across all London universities and institutes to strengthen the glia researcher network in UK.

London Glial Community

This symposium is organised by the London Glia Community, a networking forum for the glia research community with regular seminars, which is mainly driven by early career researchers in London. After a very successful first symposium in 2022, this event will again offer a great opportunity to learn about the wide spectrum of research that is done in London and around in this field, and to connect to other researchers who share this interest.

There will be invited talks from four great speakers Bart De Strooper (UK DRI at UCL), Blanca Diaz Castro (UK DRI at Edinburgh), Matthew Holt (University of Porto), Alison Lloyd (UCL), short talks selected from abstracts, and a poster session, as well as a social hour with drinks and nibbles.

Please see the draft programme here.
