9th Annual Mellanby Centre Research Day, Friday 23 November 2018

The 9th Annual Mellanby Centre Research Day will be held on Friday 23 November 2018 at Inox Dine, University of Sheffield


The aim of our meeting is to communicate novel & innovative musculoskeletal research within our group and, more importantly, with our friends and collaborators from other research institutions and industry, and with other University colleagues. We also aim to showcase our research profile to the broader public and research funders.

Our musculoskeletal research interests span skeletal diseases of childhood to the elderly, and cover both benign and malignant bone disease. Our clinical research covers areas of metabolic bone diseases including osteoporosis, childhood bone diseases, tumour-induced bone diseases. The Mellanby Centre is a partner with the AR-UK/MRC Centre for Integrated Musculoskeletal Ageing (CIMA) and with Insigneo, Europe’s largest centre for in silico medicine.

Invited speakers are:

Professor Richard Mellanby, University of Edinburgh – “The story of Sir Edward Mellanby”

Professor David Young and Dr Kat Cheung , University of Newcastle – “Bioinformatics in the study of musculoskeletal disease”

Dr Richard Keen, University College London Hospitals – “Clinical trials in rare bone diseases: challenges and revelations”

Professor Allan Pacey, Oncology & Metabolism – “Sperm, Mellanby, Strategy and the REF”

Professor Thomas Helleday, Oncology & Metabolism – “Treating cancer and inflammation by DNA repair inhibitors
