- External - Early Bird (£175)
- Internal UoE Staff Early Bird (£40)
- Internal UoE Students (£20)
Spaces are limited (100 attendees) so early registration is encouraged. Click here to register.

Seats up to 100 attendees
The newly completed auditorium is an accessible, state-of-the-art meeting space by the reception area of the IGMM. It is easily accessible by public transport, by bike, by taxis and by foot. Please note, parking facilities are not available on site. There is a range of accommodation offered in Edinburgh but hotels within 15 minute walks to the venue include Urban Village, Travelodge Edinburgh Learmonth Hotel and Channings.
About the mrc hgu
The MRC Human Genetics Unit aims to advance the understanding of genetic factors implicated in human disease and normal and abnormal development and physiology, with a special and long-standing focus on eye genetics. It is part of the MRC Institute of Genetics & Molecular Medicine at the University of Edinburgh. Research groups at the MRC HGU use the latest experimental technologies to understand how our genome works to control the normal function and development of cells, tissues and organisms, and how mutations perturb genome function in disease. This is combined with the power of computational approaches to harness the wealth of emerging data on genome variation between individuals, between cells and between species.
POSTERs & short TALKS
In this two day multidisciplinary meeting, there will be two poster sessions as well as an opportunity for a few short talks to be selected from submitted poster abstracts in the main programme. This is a great opportunity for early career researchers, post-docs and students to speak at an international meeting, so we strongly encourage submissions from these groups for consideration. In order to encourage sharing of unpublished data, we will not make the abstracts available on-line. Short abstracts (~250 words), authors and affiliations are to be submitted upon registration, by emailing organisers or on-line here. Details of poster dimensions and orientations will be provided closer to the event.
