Genetics Society One-Day Meeting

  Moving targets - dynamic  signalling in development
Saturday 7th May 2005
  International Centre for Life http://www.centreforlife.co.uk/
  Newcastle-Upon-Tyne

Scientific organisers: Patty  Kuwabara and Peter Doerner


  This meeting will bring together a group of international scientists 
to  discuss the ways in which plants and animals integrate diverse 
genetic and molecular signalling events to mediate growth, patterning 
and development.  The highlight of the meeting will be the delivery 
of the 2005 Genetics Society Medal Lecture by Professor Phil Ingham, 
Director of the Centre for  Developmental Genetics at the University 
of Sheffield.

PROMEGA YOUNG GENETICIST OF THE YEAR AWARD 2005

The Genetics Society is seeking nominations for the 2005 Promega 
Young Geneticist of the Year Award (YGYA). The competition is  open 
to PhD student/recent postdoctoral graduate members of the Society 
who  have submitted their PhD thesis in any area of genetics between 
1st January 2004 and 31st December 2004. Applications  should consist 
of the thesis abstract, details of any publications arising from the 
work, the submission date of the thesis and a signed and sealed 
envelope containing a letter of recommendation from your supervisor 
and/or  Head of Department. Applications should be sent to the 
Honorary Secretary (john.armour at nottingham.ac.uk)  of the Society and 
must be received by end of February 2005.

  Three prizes will be awarded:

1st prize =A3600 - 2nd prize =A3400 - 3rd prize  =A3200

The first prize winner will be invited to accept the award and to 
give a short presentation at the Genetics Society one day  meeting on 
'Moving targets-dynamic signalling in development' at  the Centre for 
Life, Newcastle,  May 7th 2005.

=46inalists in previous Promega YGYA competitions are  not eligible to apply

The UK Arabidopsis 2005 meeting sponsored by the Genetics Society and 
the Gatsby Trust will take place on Sunday May 8 at the Institute of 
Molecular Plant Sciences in Edinburgh.  Full details including 
preliminary programme and registration forms can be found at 
http://www.biology.ed.ac.uk/plant/pages/news/Conferences/Arabidopsis2005.htm=
=2E

  There is an excellent program of international speakers.  The 
meeting takes place the day after the Genetics Society meeting 
"Signalling Networks in Development" in Newcastle on Saturday 7 May 
(details below).  This meeting includes a significant content of 
talks from leading plant biology researchers.



It is straightforward to travel from Newcastle to Edinburgh and take 
advantage of a weekend of superb talks from leading researchers in 
fine venues, for extremely cheap registration fees.
