The UKINETS 8th National Conference will be held in Belfast on Monday 6 September 2010.
There are several points to take note of on this occasion. Firstly the conference is much earlier in the autumn this year than in previous years and secondly UKINETS is joining together with the 18th International Symposium on Regulatory Peptides and the First National NET Patient Foundation forum. This will bring basic science research, clinical research, together with diagnosis, treatment and management of Neuroendocrine Tumours and patient care and concerns together for the first time.
Because you may like to travel on the day preceding UKINETS or even earlier to take the opportunity to visit the city and region we have decided to open the conferences on Sunday evening when after a brief opening ceremony there will be a Memorial Lecture for Keith Buchanan who was a founder member of the UKINET initiative and who dedicated more that 30 years to research into regulatory peptides and neuroendocrine tumours and the management and care of patients with NETs in Northern Ireland.
Monday will be devoted to the now familiar style of programme for UKINETS and you will find the preliminary programme on the web site. Because many of you may be involved in the NET Patient Foundation programme we are planning a series of small symposia on Tuesday that will cover aspects of emerging treatment options, a transatlantic approach to diagnosis and prognosis, and some other interesting topics. You will also see the full programme for REGPEP 2010 and you are very welcome to register for further days.
Our objective for these three days in Belfast is to bring together investigators from multiple disciplines who are undertaking cutting edge research on regulatory peptides derived from the diffuse endocrine system. We hope that the meeting will be a forum for new ideas and a place of education. The scientific committees have planned a programme of the highest standard throughout the three days
Abstract Deadline: 30 April 2010
