Life Sciences 2019 will be a major meeting incorporating the British Pharmacological Society, the Physiological Society and the Biochemical Society, built around the topic of Post Translational Modifications (PTM) in biological processes. PTM is the covalent or enzymatic modification of proteins during or after protein biosynthesis.

The meeting aims to foster many collaborations and give delegates the rare opportunity to talk to those working on the same problems and to discuss different approaches. The meeting will also discuss training opportunities in technologies linked closely to selected topic areas and suggestions for such sessions are also encouraged.

The programme will aim to meeting these suggested topic areas:

  • Post-translational modification of ion channels in the vasculature
  • Post-translational modification and implications for cardiac function
  • Epigenetic biochemistry, pharmacology and pathophysiology
  • Chronic pain; aberrant signalling and novel approaches to therapy
  • Pathogen and viral induced changes in cell signalling
  • Redox biology and post-translational modifications
  • Micro and nanodomains in cell signalling
  • Ion channel posttranslational modifications: Structure, function and targeting
  • Post-translational modification of receptors and cell signalling
  • New analytical Approaches for PTM

The full programme for this meeting will be available in due course. For any questions in the meantime, please contact meetings@bps.ac.uk or call +44 (0)20 7239 0183.

The maximum amount for individual bursaries and will usually be restricted to up to 75% of the aggregate cost of accommodation and travel for students and 50% for non-students. The maximum award is £750. Food and beverage costs and travel incidentals will not be reimbursed. Costs will be based on the Society’s assessment of the most economical mode of travel and a reasonable standard of accommodation.
 
Care support bursaries
Care support bursaries are also available to members who have caring responsibilities and would benefit from financial support towards caring costs. For further information, please click here.

Useful directions and information

By bus
There are a number of bus services running from Nottingham to University Park Campus. The closest bus stop (UN17) is “Wollaton Park Gates” on the A52. Bus numbers 21, 35, 35B, 36 Y5 and i4 stop here. There is a pedestrian route through from this bus stop directly into the University Campus. It joins Beeston Lane. Turn right on Beeston Lane and follow the road to the Conference Centre. Bus route 21, Y5 and i4 go from Market Square / Friar Lane in the middle of Nottingham (bus stops F2, B1 and F3). Please see the bus services page for further information.
 
By train
The nearest train stations are located in Nottingham City Centre or Beeston. Taxis and buses are available at both stations.
 
By tram
If you are coming to University Park Campus from Nottingham Train Station, you can now hop on a tram which is accessible by the walkway leading from the station. Tickets must be purchased before boarding. Follow the signs to the trams (NET), and get on a tram headed towards Toton Lane (green line). The closet stop is “University Boulevard”. Cross the dual carriage way that the tram has been following (there are pedestrian crossing points), turn left and follow the pavement around the outside of railings around the University Park, towards the roundabout ahead.  At the roundabout, enter Nottingham University Campus at the West Entrance and follow the road round (it bends left, then right) to the Conference Centre, which is about 800m on the right.
 
From East Midlands Airport
Take the Skylink (EMA–Long Eaton-Nottingham route) and get off at “Paddling Pool” stop. This is at the corner of University Park close to the “University Boulevard” tram stop. Follow the railings round to the West Entrance to University Park, then follow the road round to the Conference Centre, which is about 800m on the right. 
 
You can also walk to the taxi rank on the terminal forecourt and take a direct taxi to the University. The cost of a single/one way journey is approximately £20.
 
Arrival by car
From the M1, leave at junction 25. Take the A52 towards Nottingham. At the third roundabout, with a BP garage, go right onto Woodside Road. At the next roundabout, turn left into Nottingham University Campus (West Entrance).  Follow the road (it bends left, then right) for about 800m. The conference centre is on your right.  Go through barriers. An access code for exit is available at Orchard Hotel or the conference centre reception.

From campus to campus
The University provides a free Hopper Bus service which runs from University Park Campus to Jubilee Campus, Sutton Bonington Campus, King's Meadow Campus and Royal Derby Hospital Centre.
