UCL Infection, Immunology and Inflammation (III) Symposium 2016

  • Dates: 08 Nov, 2016
Tuesday 8 November

Venue: UCL Institute of Education (UCL IoE)

Registration is now open for the annual UCL Infection, Immunology and Inflammation Symposium on Tuesday 8 November 2016 at the UCL Institute of Education.

This event, held in partnership with UCLPartners, will bring researchers together from across UCL, Queen Mary University of London (QMUL) and beyond, enabling cross-disciplinary interaction and encouraging new collaborations.

Eminent speakers from UCL, QMUL and our partner organisations will present their ground-breaking work and answer your questions.

We are also holding an abstract competition for early career researchers in both the basic and clinical sciences. Abstracts must be submitted using the Eventbrite registration link (below).

For more information and to register to attend, please click on the following link:

The deadline for submitting abstracts is Friday 30 September. 

The abstract competition is open to early career researchers (ECRs), i.e. those in the early stages of their research career. We encourage you to use a self-defining definition of whether you identify as an ECR, but our general guidance is PhD candidates and post-doc researchers who do not have a permanent position. Note that there is no age limit here.

Submitted abstracts will be scored by the III Symposium Organising Committee. The top-scoring six applicants will be invited to present their research to the 250-strong Symposium audience. The other selected applicants will be invited to present a poster of their abstract to display during the day. The poster and presentation competition winners will then be announced and rewarded at the end of the Symposium, before the networking drinks reception.

A certificate of attendance is available to all attendees via UCL Life Learning for the purpose of recording learning hours. Please note, this is not an accredited Continuing Professional Development (CPD) event but the learning hours can be logged as part of a CPD record.

We very much hope to welcome you on Tuesday 8 November for a fascinating day of research excellence and networking opportunities.
