Continued loss of biodiversity and the goods and services it provides has led to the adoption of numerous international agreements to halt biodiversity loss. I will review progress towards the internationally-agreed 2020 Aichi biodiversity targets, and present projections of indicators to 2020 to assess whether which targets we are likely to meet by 2020. Further I will focus on one conservation strategy, protected areas, and present analyses of their effectiveness in preventing conversion of habitats and loss of species.

Where did your dead neurons go?: Coupling between apoptosis and microglial phagocytosis in health and disease (13:00)

13:00 - 14:00
2014-11-25T13:00:00+00:002014-11-25T14:00:00+00:00
Microglia are the brain professional phagocytes, a more beneficial and less explored role than their traditional implication in the neuroinflammatory response. Phagocytosis of apoptotic cells is strongly beneficial, as it prevents the spillover of intracellular contents and restrains the inflammatory response. Despite the potentially central role of phagocytosis in maintaining tissue homeostasis in all the widespread conditions in which apoptosis is known to occur, from development to neurodegenerative diseases, its mechanisms and functional consequences remain poorly understood.

Erika's research interests lie within the field of proteomics, using cutting edge mass spectrometry to identify protein biomarkers of disease progression and treatment as well as developing qualitative and quantitative methods that enable the identification of protein biomarkers that are present within samples in low abundance. Her technical expertise includes the preparation and mass spectrometry analysis of complex samples such serum, tumour tissue and skin as well as 3-D skin models, cell lines, interstitial fluid and chemically modified model proteins.

There are many different ways of making a living as a plant or animal. Your life-history is a description of how long you live, when you become reproductive and how many babies you have. Life-history determines an organism’s population dynamics – ultimately determining evolutionary fitness and whether a population persists or goes extinct under different conditions. Evolution shapes life-histories and life histories can have consequences for how evolution proceeds.

Secrets of Stress Free Life (17:00)

2015-03-12T17:00:00+00:002015-03-12T20:00:00+00:00
Matt Tofield presents an uncomplicated guide to which parts of the brain are involved in stress and unhappiness, and an explanation of why anxiety and panic can arise and leave you feeling really stressed out. Matt will discuss how our behaviour mirrors what thoughts, especially negative thoughts, go through our head. He will explain how we can regain control over our stress by actively taking charge of our thoughts and feelings, and will outline coping mechanisms that will help deal with heavy workloads and stressful situations. Most of us panic at some time in our lives, after all it galvanises us into action, a good survival technique. However, it is possible to regain enjoyment of our work and master our stress and panic response, and sometimes this can be as simple as making a list of what upsets us and thinking of ways to change those situations, or change our responses to those situations. Matt will guide us through how to deal with physical and emotional symptoms of stress and discuss why we all respond differently to stressful situations. Along the way stress prevention and stress management techniques will be discussed and practised, the overall aim being to go away with a clear understanding of what stress is, how it affects our body's health and well-being, and to have clear simple methods of managing our own stress better.

- 2015-04-19

Organised by: Southampton Law School
This conference will be the first of its kind and constitutes a ground-breaking historical event on the road towards justice and enduring peace in historic Palestine. It is unique because it concerns the legitimacy in International Law of the Jewish state of Israel. Rather than focusing on Israeli actions in the 1967 Occupied Territories, the conference will focus on exploring themes of Legitimacy, Responsibility and Exceptionalism; all of which are posed by Israel’s very nature.

2015-05-13T09:30:00+01:002015-05-13T15:30:00+01:00
Are you concerned that traditional GCSE practicals do not do enough to develop your students' scientific enquiry skills (How Science Works/Working Scientifically), and so reduce their ability to perform well in examinations? This hands-on course gives ideas for how to manage the large number of specified practicals, whilst at the same time allowing students to investigate the topic being studied. We will also look at how revisiting the "same practical" in different topic areas can help students manage the difficulties posed by a linear exam system. The complementary role of the teacher and technician will be looked at throughout, and we will discuss strategies for effective team working. This is a biology update course and the content of the course will change with curriculum developments. The course assumes you are familiar with the basics of Health and Safety management and biology practical skills such as those in Supporting Safe and Successful Biology I and Supporting Safe and Successful Biology II.

CLEAPSS Supporting Safe and Successful Practical Biology I: Foundation (09:30)

09:30 - 15:30
2015-05-14T09:30:00+01:002015-05-14T15:30:00+01:00
If this is your first year working on Biology practicals and you have concerns about the Health and Safety aspects and the techniques, then this course will help build your confidence. The hands-on course will give guidelines on how to work safely to prepare the materials and equipment. We will also look at ways in which you can get unreliable practicals to work. You will be able to trial all the practicals you prepare, and then explore issues with clearing away and disposal. This is a foundation biology course. The course assumes you are familiar with the basics of Health and Safety management. If not, you would be advised to attend the Health and Safety for Science Technicians course first.

CLEAPSS Safe and Successul A level Biology (09:30)

09:30 - 15:30
2015-06-09T09:30:00+01:002015-06-09T15:30:00+01:00
Are you concerned that traditional A level practicals do not do enough to develop your students' scientific enquiry skills (How Science Works and Working Scientifically), and so reduce their ability to perform well in examinations?

CLEAPSS Supporting Safe and Successful Practical Biology II: Getting it to work (09:30)

09:30 - 15:30
2015-06-10T09:30:00+01:002015-06-10T15:30:00+01:00
As an experienced technician or teacher, you will be aware that many biology practicals do not give expected results in lessons. You might also lack confidence with practicals that support teaching in new areas of biology. This hands-on course looks at ways to resolve the problem of getting consistent results, considering a range of key practicals in current GCSE and A level specifications. We will also introduce techniques for gene technology and explore practicals that relate to other recent developments in biology.

CLEAPSS Safety with Chemicals for Technicians (09:30)

09:30 - 15:30
2015-06-18T09:30:00+01:002015-06-18T15:30:00+01:00
This course is suitable for technicians who are taking on or already have responsibility for chemicals. No prior chemical knowledge is required. Note: the course is not intended for those with detailed chemical experience, though it can help in adapting outside experience to work in school science.

CLEAPSS Managing Health and Safety in New Areas of Biology (09:30)

09:30 - 15:30
2015-07-07T09:30:00+01:002015-07-07T15:30:00+01:00
You will be aware that the content of school courses has changed significantly in recent years, as new developments in real world biology are included. There are many health and safety, ethical and legal concerns with these new areas. This course looks at risk assessment for current and near future biology practicals, using the newly developed range of CLEAPSS safety in biology resources.

CLEAPSS Gene Technology in Schools (09:30)

09:30 - 15:30
2015-07-08T09:30:00+01:002015-07-08T15:30:00+01:00
This new practical course introduces the full range of current techniques used for investigative practical gene technology in schools, looks towards the future of practical work in cellular genetics and considers the potential of apparatus that is becoming available to schools. There will also be discussion about opportunities that may become available following changes in the Genetically Modified Organisms (GMO) legislations.
