Event description
A chance for British Society for Nanomedicine early career researchers to showcase their exciting and innovate research.

About this Event

The British Society for Nanomedicine (BSNM) are pleased to announce the first in a series of early career researcher online events. The first event, taking place on the 25th and 26th November, provides an excellent opportunity for ECR's to showcase innovative research and discuss outputs and opportunities with other young researchers and experts within the field of nanomedicine. The event will also provide researchers with the chance to collaborate and network with the wider nanomedicine community during interactive breakout sessions.

The meeting will be delivered virtually as the platform moves online for the first time and will be hosted by the new BSNM co-chairs Professor Steve Conlan, Swansea University and Dr Tom McDonald, Liverpool University.

The event will also see two keynote talks from Professor Steve Rannard, Liverpool University and Dr Ciro Chiappini, Kings College London.

This will be the first in a series of quarterly events, which will be delivered virtually with the hope of moving to physical events once again in the near future.
