CATO Research Symposium: 27 June

Wednesday 27 June 2018, 13.00-18.30, W12 Conference Centre, Hammersmith Hospital

The annual research symposium is a key part of clinical academic training –  exposing trainees to a wider range of research than in day-to-day work, giving an opportunity to think of novel collaborations, techniques, and research questions, and see how a clinical academic career can be developed. It is an essential part of clinical academic life!  You should attend if you are an Academic Foundation Doctor, ACF, in a clinical research training fellowship/PhD, CL or other post-doctoral researcher, or a non-medical clinical academic.

The afternoon will include research presentations, a keynote presentation from a world-leading academic, poster viewing and networking opportunities.

ACFs, CRTFs, CLs and AFPs, and non-medical clinical academic researchers are invited to submit a research abstract for this event. There will be prizes for the best oral presentations in each trainee category and also for the best poster
