This is the annual meeting of Telomere Network UK, a grouping of UK-based researchers with broad interests in telomere biology. This community of researchers is generously supported by the Genetics Society as a Sectional Interest Group.
The TeN UK meeting is held at a different venue each year with the same format maintained: an afternoon of talks primarily by PhD students and junior postdocs, a poster session followed by a conference dinner and a morning of talks (again by PhD students and postdocs).
Work on the roles of telomeres in basic cell biology, human health and ecological settings will be discussed from a variety of model systems and experimental approaches. Meeting organisers: Nicola Royle, Alessandro Bianchi and David Lydall.
