Early Careers Day

On Monday 19 March we will be holding an Early Careers Day with parallel sessions specifically designed for PhD students or Post docs and Fellows.

The PhD sessions at our Early Careers Day are a great opportunity to present your work to fellow students in a relaxed environment. Along with scientific discussion we will be holding a panel session to help you navigate your career and also hearing from those working directly with people living with dementia. There will also be a poster session although we will only have limited spaces available.

The Early Career Day is open to both ARUK and non-ARUK funded PhD students. If you would like to give an oral presentation of your work, please submit an abstract to Beth Sivyer by 12 January 2018. Several students will be selected to give a 15 minute talk.
