Advancing discoveries from basic research to clinics is one of core mission from universities and academic institutions in the U.K. Translational research programs are set deliver more innovation into health care, across new drug or vaccines therapies, diagnostics, devices or others. The Translational Research Office (TRO) was established in 2019 in Oxford to support researchers and clinicians at an early stage of their research to help them make to transition from basic to translational research for the benefit of society. What are the mechanisms and tools that can help you advance your research? The TRO will give you tips and advice on how to navigate the translational research landscape in Oxford and the U.K. The Business Development and Partnering Team provides the resources to develop, deliver and support long-term partnerships and have been instrumental in setting up a number of strategic partnerships and in building relationships with SMEs. The team manage a number of industry supported fellowship schemes, run focused networking and matchmaking events –AIM Days. What opportunities might there be for you to collaborate with Industry? Through our growing network of external contacts our team can work with you to identify the ideal industrial partner for your research. We can offer a wide range of support for your collaborative research, from simply facilitating the right introductions through to ongoing post-agreement support to ensure longevity and efficiency in your partnership. We work closely with partners across the University including the Translational Research Office, Oxford University Innovation and contracts teams in Research Services.

* CANCELLED * POSTPONED Heart Growth and Regeneration: Crossing the Line

Professor Henry M. Sucov, PhD

It is generally thought that the adult heart has too little endogenous ability to appreciably restore myocardium that is lost after ischemia or infarction. In contrast, the fetal and early neonatal heart have a very high capacity for cardiomyocyte proliferation and regeneration. Why and how the... Read more

It is generally thought that the adult heart has too little endogenous ability to appreciably restore myocardium that is lost after ischemia or infarction. In contrast, the fetal and early neonatal heart have a very high capacity for cardiomyocyte proliferation and regeneration. Why and how the mammalian heart becomes essentially nonregenerative is one of the enduring mysteries of heart biology. Using genetic approaches, my lab has redefined natural heart regeneration as a variable trait subject to the combined influences of multiple polymorphic genes. With this perspective, a number of longstanding questions now become amenable to experimental evaluation. In this presentation, I will discuss genetic, cellular, and mechanistic insights that have been realized based on this new paradigm, and potential therapeutic strategies that could improve endogenous heart regeneration in all patients regardless of their genetic and cellular composition.

B cells are important in the pathogenesis of many, and perhaps all, immune-mediated diseases. Here we describe methods that characterise the human adaptive immune response by high-throughput sequencing of B cell receptors and single cell transcriptomics. I will describe how we are using these technologies to understand the immune responses across health, autoimmune diseases, immunodeficiencies and cancer, and how we can leverage this knowledge gained across pathologies to direct us towards more targeted therapies.
