Lecture “Nodding Off: Sleep and psychopathology” by Professor Alice Gregory (Psychology Department, Goldsmiths, University of London) on September 11, 2019

International Centre for Research into Human Development invites students, PhD students and faculty members to attend an invited lecture “Nodding Off: Sleep and psychopathology” by Professor Alice Gregory (Psychology Department, Goldsmiths, University of London) on September 11, 2019.

Sleep consumes a third of our lives, but we tend to only think about it when it is proving problematic. During the first half of the lecture background information will be provided about sleep. This will include information about what happens when we nod off, the functions of sleep and how much sleep we need. The second half of the lecture will focus on Professor Gregory’s main research area: the links between sleep and psychopathology. There will be a particular emphasis on the associations between the way we sleep and symptoms of anxiety and depression and the mechanisms underlying these associations.

The open lecture is given within the programme of academic mobility Erasmus+ between Goldsmths, University of London, and Tomsk State University.

Date and venue: September 11, 2019 from 16 35 to 18 10; TSU building 4, room 022.

Biog.: Alice Gregory first developed an interest in sleep research as a BA student of Experimental Psychology at the University of Oxford after watching a lecturer give a terrific talk on the topic. Following the completion of her degree, she studied in Japan for a year collecting cross-cultural data for her first publication in the field of sleep research. Upon her return she commenced her PhD at the Institute of Psychiatry using epidemiological and twin samples to learn more about the associations between sleep disturbances, anxiety and depression concurrently and longitudinally. Alice is now a professor at Goldsmiths, University of London. She has published over 100 papers and chapters, mainly focusing on sleep or associated traits. Her first book: Nodding Off: Sleep from Cradle to Grave was published by Bloomsbury in June 2018 and her second The Sleepy Pebble and Other Stories will be published by Flying Eye books next month.

International Conference: Justice in the Genomic and Digital Era

The international Centre for Research in Human Development, The Accessible Genetics Consortiom and the Institute of Law and Ethics invite to take part in the International Conference: "International Conference: Justice in the Genomic and Digital Era".

Date: September 6, 2019

Location: Tomsk State University

We are 20 years into the genomic era. The unprecedented progress in genetics internationally has brought numerous legal and ethical implications for individuals and society. Genetic findings are already widely used in medicine and are increasingly applied to other spheres, such as crime prevention, and educational and career selection. To protect individuals and science, updates to relevant laws are essential. To date, little progress has been made in regulating use of genetic information. Genetic science is complex, with research involving private and state sectors globally. Therefore, multidisciplinary and international efforts are required to achieve effective protection. This conference aims to bring together specialist in genetics, law and other disciplines to raise awareness of legal and ethical concerns and to promote progress in updating the legal protection.
