Harden Conferences

  • 49th Harden Conference 14 - 18th August 1999 at Eynsham Hall, North Leigh, Oxfordshire on "Functional Aspects of Energy Metabolism in Brain: Relationship to Brain Development and Neurodegenerative Disease "

  • 50th Harden Conference 1- 5th September 1999 at Wye College, on "Annexins".

The Harden Conferences are residential research conferences held annually under the auspices of the Biochemical Society. Each conference covers a specialist topic and is aimed at the forefront of biological research.

The conferences are planned to be of an interdisciplinary nature, bringing together scientists from various backgrounds who have a common interest in, but different approaches to, the topic of the conference. To maintain a suitably high level of discussion and presentation at the conference, it is desirable that participants be experienced in the field covered; most of the participants will be expected to have postdoctoral or equivalent experience, although Ph.D. students will also be welcome. Each conference lasts four to five days, with planned scientific sessions morning and evening, and the afternoon left clear for informal scientific interchange and recreation.

The planned scientific sessions feature speakers invited by the Conference Chairman and, in addition, time is left for extensive discussion and for short contributions, including posters, by other conference participants.

All participants must be resident for the duration of the conference.

Bursaries and free places
A limited number of bursaries to cover the cost of registration are available to assist younger members of the Biochemical Society to attend the conferences. In addition, six free places will be available at each conference for applicants under 27 years.

Preference will be given to senior graduate students and restricted to members of the Biochemical Society and the sponsoring societies, i.e. British Biophysical Society, British Society for Cell Biology, British Society for Immunology, Genetical Society, Physiological Society, Society for General Microbiology, Society for Free Radical Research, and Society for Experimental Biology. Applications for these places should be sent to the Biochemical Society from the applicant's supervisor and should be accompanied by an independent reference.
