Invitation and Welcome

I invite you to attend the 42nd Annual Meeting of the United Kingdom Environmental Mutagen Society (UKEMS), which will be held at Magdalen College, Oxford, September 2-5 2018.

Founded in 1458, Magdalen is one of Oxford’s most beautiful colleges and it has a long and distinguished history with many famous alumni. It is set in parkland in the heart of the city with grounds extending to over 100 acres, including immaculate lawns, herbaceous borders, a circular walk beside the River Cherwell and its own deer park.

The conference will cover a full range of topical issues in mutagenesis and genetic toxicology, with invited speakers from the UK, Europe and North America. All delegates will be provided with college accommodation and meals served in the mediaeval oak-panelled Dining Hall.
