This site is intended for EEMS members and any party interested in the broad field of environmental mutagenesis and/or in our activities.
The Molecular Epidemiology Group UK (MEGUK) are hosting their Annual Spring Meeting in Aberdeen on March the 24th this year. The conference is entitled “Nutrition & Human Health: from Molecules to Man” and will cover topics including the influence of diet on colon and HPV-linked cancers, the human microbiome and gut health and the impact of diet on epigenetic modulators of human disease.
Confirmed speakers include Professor Rune Blomhoff (University of Oslo, Norway), Dr Clarissa Gerhauser (German Cancer Research Centre, Heidelberg, Germany), Professor Hilary Powers (University of Sheffield, UK) and Dr Wendy Russell (University of Aberdeen, UK).
This 1-day meeting is open to all researchers interested in diet and human health. Early career researchers and PhD students are particularly welcome, with several places reserved within the programme for oral communications invited on the basis of submitted abstracts. Prizes for the best early career researcher or student oral presentation and poster (sponsored by Aberdeen Science Centre and the School of Pharmacy & Life Sciences at Robert Gordon University) are awarded at the meeting.
Registration details, together with how to submit an abstract for either an oral or poster presentation are now available on the MEGUK website
Joint Belgium, Dutch and UK Environmental Mutagenesis Society meeting 2017
May we invite you to join the 40th Annual Meeting of the United Kingdom Environmental Mutagen Society (UKEMS) on Sunday 25th to Wednesday 28th June 2017 in Leuven, Belgium. This meeting is a joint meeting with the Dutch and Belgium Environmental Mutagen Societies and will be the first time UKEMS have ventured outside of the United Kingdom. We hope to be able to reinforce many of the great links our societies have traditionally enjoyed and to take the opportunity to forge new alliances with our near neighbors. The meeting will cover all aspects in relation to DNA damage and mutations caused by environmental agents and will focus on new technologies and innovative modalities. The EEMGS Frits Zobels and young Scientist award presentations as well as the EEMGS general assembly will be part of this meeting. EEMGS will provide financial support (waiving registration) to 3 young scientists to attend the meeting.
