Event description

Description

For those attending:

The University of Exeter is pleased to host this year's Academy of Medical Sciences Poster Presentation Event at the RILD building, Barrack Road EX2 5DW, Exeter. The event is open to anyone interested in medical and scientific advances. Presentations will showcase the research and successes of some of the UK's most promising early-career researchers.

We will be delighted to welcome Prof Cheryll Tickle FRS CBE as our plenary speaker. Prof Tickle is best known for her work in developmental biology and specifically for her research into the process by which vertebrate limbs develop ab ovo.

We will also have a speaker from the Academy of Medical Sciences who will talk about Academy career development and funding schemes.


For those interested in entering the poster prize competition:

It is open to all early career researchers (PhD student, Postdoc, Clinical fellow) working on biomedical topics in the South West of England: Cornwall, Devon, Dorset, Wiltshire, Somerset and Gloucestershire, plus the unitary authorities and cities embedded in these areas (e.g. Bristol, Bath, Exeter, Plymouth).

There will be a £250 clinical and a £250 non-clinical prize, the classification depending on the topic rather than on whether the applicant is clinically qualified.

Submissions should be sent by email to Professor Jonathan Slack (j.m.w.slack@bath.ac.uk) in the form of a poster (ppt or pdf). The deadline is Friday March 2nd. Posters will be judged by a panel of Academy Fellows for presentation quality, scientific quality and overall impact, and a short list will be drawn up. The short-listed individuals will be invited to give a presentation from which the overall winners will be chosen. This will take place at the University of Exeter on the afternoon of Tuesday May 1st and will be open to all. It will be followed by a short career development seminar from the Academy, and a drinks reception. Travel expenses for the presenters will be refunded.
