Bridging the clinical-research gap
21 Nov - London, UK
The Microbiology Society and the Healthcare Infection Society are delighted to co-host a collaborative one-day workshop, Bridging the clinical-research gap in London on 21 November 2019.
The workshop aims to bring academic and clinical microbiologists together to find ways to collaborate meaningfully, with the aim of improving the translation of research into advances in infection prevention and control. There will be ample opportunity for members of both societies to network and identify areas of interest for potential collaborations, and the opportunity to speak to funders to facilitate those collaborations.
Attendees will hear from experienced scientists and clinicians and learn about the realities of collaborations – both things to remember and things to watch out for – before participating in a workshop that will answer some common questions.
To register for this inaugural workshop, please complete the form available on Eventbrite. The expressions of interest will be considered by the convenors and applicants will be contacted if successful. A £50 deposit will be required to secure your registration, which will be refunded on attendance. If you are unable to attend this year’s workshop but are interested in participating in the future, please contact [email protected] for further details.
Bursaries of up to £100 are available to support Microbiology Society members requiring support to travel to the workshop. To apply for the bursary please indicate this during registration.
