Event description

Description

The Early Career Researcher Conference is hosted by the Alzheimer's Research UK North-West Network and is based at the University of Manchester. The day will be a fantastic opportunity to network with colleagues from different institutions within the North-West Network.

All PhD students, postdocs and research technicians are welcome to attend.

The focus of this event will be on scientific careers and skills which are relevant to early career researchers. There will be a panel discussion with guest speakers showcasing a range of different science-related careers outside of academia, and a dedicated session on how to secure a research fellowship. Our speakers will offer specific insights on how to tailor a fellowship application for dementia and neuroscience related funding bodies, including ARUK.

We are delighted to confirm that we will also have 2 plenary lectures this year: the first will be from Prof Dame Nancy Rothwell, President and Vice-Chancellor of the University of Manchester, and the second from Dr Alison Mather, BBSRC Anniversary Future Leader Fellow at the University of Cambridge.

There will be a poster prize, which has been funded by our corporate sponsor, ProteinTech. To submit poster abstracts, please email Steven Bradburn at steven.bradburn@mmu.ac.uk by 30th June. Please keep abstracts to a maximum of 500 words. Space to display posters is limited, so abstracts will be accepted on a first come first served basis.
