UCL Infection, Immunology and Inflammation Symposium 2013: Towards Drug Discovery and Stratification

Tuesday 15 October 2013

Venue: UCL Institute of Child Health, 30 Guilford Street, London, WC1N 1EH

We have an excellent line-up of eminent speakers from UCL and beyond, who will be presenting their ground-breaking work and answering your questions (see programme below for all the details).

There will also be a presentation and poster competition for early career researchers in both the basic and clinical sciences, with the top two in both categories being awarded prizes by the new UCL President and Provost, Professor Michael Arthur.

The deadline for submitting abstracts for the competitions have now passed.

We are also delighted to announce that Professor Michael Arthur will deliver the key note speech and present the poster prizes at the end of the Symposium, before attending the drinks reception.
