Early Career Cardiovascular Scientists’ Symposium

November 24, 2022

The University of Manchester

About This Event

This event is part of a joint scheme between the Physiological Society, the British Pharmacological Society, and the Biochemical Society, which provides funding for early career researchers to host an early career life sciences symposium of our choice.

The symposium will encompass three main themes of integrative cardiovascular research: vascular health and disease, genetics of cardiovascular disease, and cardiac physiology. In addition, the day will also involve presentations from a panel of speakers on grant/fellowship applications, sustainable research, and on the challenges of diversity in STEM, and a relaxed evening reception providing further opportunity to network and establish new and lasting connections.

More details can be found on our website and on the attached flyer (click the red "Download Programme" to the right).
