About the Venue
Lancaster… Successful conferences start with a tailor-made conference facility.
Join us for the 24th ESGLD Workshop to learn of achievements thus far, and glimpse into the future of lysosomal disease research and therapies. Workshop topics include:
– Lysosome Function
– Lysosomal Pathology
The graduate course, held immediately before the workshop is an opportunity for postdocs, PhD students and clinical fellows who are new to the lysosomal disease field to be taught about the fundamentals of lysosomal diseases by experts who are at the cutting edge of these areas and to have a chance to informally practice presenting their work in a non-challenging environment to their peers. Participants in the graduate course usually go on to attend the workshop afterwards.
The small county town of Lancaster is built on the site of a Roman encampment (Castrum), constructed to guard the crossing over the River Lune. It later became a prosperous port from the proceeds of the slave trade. A short distance from the town’s railway station stands Lancaster Castle. A magnificent Norman Fortress, originally built to keep Scottish invaders at bay.
Steeped in almost 1000 years of history including the trials of the Pendle Witches and the Birmingham Six, Lancaster Castle is one of the most important historic monuments in the North West. Come and visit the old cells, Shire Hall and Crown Court.
Stroll through Lancaster and you’ll find history on every corner. Unlock history within the castle prison walls or admire Georgian Splendour in its fine buildings. Want to take in the views? Then head up to Williamson’s Park and enjoy the views from the Ashton Memorial, one of the North’s great follies. Lancaster really is one of England’s Heritage Cities with a big story to tell.
