As always, we have tried to keep registration fees as low as possible. PhD students and technicians will get free registration, post-docs and PIs will have a registration fee of £30. Registrations include all tea, coffee breaks and lunch breaks. These low registrations costs have been made possible by generous support from Kidney Research UK,  Transnetyx and IDT Integrated DNA Technologies. Note that if you want to use the free registration option you will need to supply a letter from your supervisor or line manager to confirm your status. This letter needs to be uploaded at the time of registration.

Keynote speakers will be Andreas Schedl from the University of Nice in France and Barry Denholm, Centre for Integrative Physiology, University of Edinburgh. Other talks will be selected from submitted abstracts. Abstracts can also be uploaded at the moment of registration.

The Roslin Institute is on Easter Bush Campus, south of Edinburgh. It is served by bus routes 15, 37, X47 and 67 from Lothian Buses. Taxi costs from the city centre to the institute are approximately £20 and take 20-30 minutes. Finding accommodation in Edinburgh is not a problem, and hotels in all price categories are available.
