Call for abstracts - Understanding Society Conference: Combining Biological and Social Data

Researchers from all disciplines are invited to submit abstracts for the upcoming Understanding Society conference on combining biological and social data. 

Combining Biological and Social Data will take place at Broadway House in London on 6 December 2018 and will give researchers the opportunity to showcase current and ongoing work based on Understanding Society biomarker, genetics and epigenetics data. Work in progress is welcome and there will be plenty of opportunities during the conference for feedback and discussion. 

The call for abstracts is now open and closes at midnight (GMT) on Monday 1 October 2018. Abstracts will be reviewed by the conference organising committee and the authors of successful submissions will be notified by mid-October.
