The VALIDATE Network - Vaccine development for complex intracellular neglected pathogens
Early Career Microbiologists' Forum inaugural conference, 2018
Dates: 14-15 June 2018
Location: Birmingham, UK
The Early Career Microbiologists’ (ECM) Forum will be hosting a summer conference for early career microbiologists to hear about research from their peers and network with other delegates. The conference will provide an introductory experience to scientific conferences for first-year PhD students, undergraduate and masters students in a reassuring, peer-led environment as well as the opportunity to present for the first time. Abstracts are welcome for both offered oral and poster presentations.
There is also opportunity for PhD and postdoctoral researchers to present their scientific research as invited speakers, as well as learning how to chair sessions and judge poster presentations. On top of the scientific sessions, including a keynote lecture from Dr Adam Roberts packed full of career advice, delegates will experience professional development training focussed on the issues that matter the most to early career microbiologists. There will be many opportunities to network so come prepared to make friends over posters, a free BBQ dinner and an evening social event. Whether it is presenting your research or advancing your networking and presentation skills, the ECM Forum Summer Conference will provide a unique experience.
