UK Worm Meeting 2024

Welcome to the UK Worm Meeting 2024 website.

We are delighted to once again host the annual UK Worm Meeting at the University of East Anglia, Norwich. UK Worm Meeting brings together researchers across the UK working mainly with C. elegans and other related nematodes and covers diverse topics of interest including developmental biology, ageing, gene expression regulation, evolution etc.

Our event is a great opportunity for early career scientists to present their work to a friendly audience that loves all things about C. elegans. Our event is kindly sponsored by the Genetics Society, Magnitude Biosciences and Embody Biosignals.


Please click on the following link to go to the UEA registration webpage for the event. Our event is free for Genetics Society UK members (not the Genetics Society of US). The registration deadline is the 5th of April 2024. Once registered for the event, you will receive an email with the link to the abstract submission website. The abstract submission deadline is 19th March 2024.
