Early Careers Day

On Monday 16 March we will be holding an Early Careers Day with parallel sessions specifically designed for PhD students or postdocs and Fellows. You can register to attend the Early Careers Day along with your main Conference registration. We expect this event to be very popular, so we suggest early registration to avoid disappointment.

The PhD sessions at our Early Careers Day provide a great opportunity to present your work to fellow students in a relaxed environment. The Early Career Day is open to both Alzheimer’s Research UK and non-Alzheimer’s Research UK-funded PhD students.

The Early Career Day takes place on Monday 16 March 2020 at the International Convention Centre Wales.
