Abstract Submission is now closed.
The Infection and Immunity Research Network's Early Career Researchers' event is a fantastic opportunity for Early Career Researchers, junior and senior staff to hear about all the different research taking place across the wider Infection and Immunity community.
PhD students and post-docs are invited to share their methodologies, results, frustrations and skills to a wider audience in the expectation that discussions could lead to greater inter- and multidisciplinary understanding of the research in question and its potential relevance to other research areas.
Encouraging dialogue between researchers can reveals pools of experience and knowledge that can be applied elsewhere. This fosters not just the creation of new research directions but new ways of working, new ways to support and enable our academic community, and new learning experiences.
ALL staff and students across the University, in all Schools, Units and Faculties, are very welcome to participate.
The Infection and Immunity Research Network is grateful to the Elizabeth Blackwell Institute for Health Research for supporting this event, and to Qiagen and Abcam for sponsoring best oral and poster presentation prizes.
