Annual Meeting 2019 – Date and Venue

We have been working hard on the UK EGG programme for this year, and are delighted to announce the date for the 2019 annual meeting, which will be held in Glasgow on Friday 8 November. Further details regarding the event location and programme will be announced via the website soon.

For this meeting we are honoured to welcome Professor Veronica Van Heyningen as our keynote speaker, who will present her work on “Disease to genes and biology: PAX6 and progress”. I am sure no introduction is needed for most people, but you can read Prof Van Heyningen’s profile here.

More news and developments are to come, in the meantime we would like to thank you for your continued support of UK-EGG in 2019.
