On 26 May 2011 the Young Life Scientist (YLS) Symposium 2011 themed “Autonomic control in health and disease” was hosted by the School of Sport and Exercise Sciences. This yearly event is organized by and for young life scientists, from undergraduate students to postdoctoral researchers.
Doctoral researchers from the School of Sport & Exercise Sciences and the Medical School organized a day full of insightful and excellent presentations from Professor Coote, Dr James Fisher and Dr Keith Brain. These talks were embedded around oral communication sessions, poster and networking sessions, careers and grant writing workshops and a touch of poster speed dating to get everyone chatting!
Students from the School of Sport and Exercise Sciences had the invaluable opportunity to communicate their undergraduate and/or postgraduate work and to engage with the research community in the field of autonomic control.
We would like to thank the Biochemical Society, the Pharmacological Society and the Physiological Society for the opportunity to run this event and for their excellent support.
Moreover, we appreciate the help of all the undergraduate and postgraduate students from the School of Sport and Exercise Sciences and the Medical School who made this day an invaluable experience for everyone.
