SFAM: Early Career Scientists 7th Annual Research Symposium
Dates: 28 March 2018
Location: University of Birmingham, UK
The Society for Applied Microbiology's Early Career Scientists 7th Annual Research Symposium will be held at the University of Birmingham with a focus on Epidemiology and Infection Control. The symposium aims to bring together microbiologists, epidemiologists, public health researchers, academics, practitioners and most importantly early career scientists and undergraduate students. The symposium is a forum for those who wish to exchange and share their experiences, ideas and research on all aspects of epidemiology and infection control. The Symposium will also include a public engagement workshop given by the incredible team at Sense about Science.
It will also provide the chance to hear from Fin Twomey, Head of Animal Public Health at Defraand Jonathan Van-Tam, Deputy Chief Medical Officer for England, our premier keynote speakers. They will discuss the most recent innovations, trends, challenges and adopted solutions in the fields of epidemiology and infection control.
All Early Career Scientists (including undergraduates, doctoral students, and early post-docs) are encouraged to contribute to and help shape the conference through submissions of their research abstracts, papers and e-posters. The symposium welcomes contributions from any area of applied microbiology as well as work that addresses the themes and topics of the conference.
