26 July, 2017 - AMR Network event - current research & future funding

Time: 14:00:00 - 17:00:00

UCL’s Antimicrobial Resistance (AMR) Network is organising an event to showcase AMR related research going on across UCL and hear from the Medical Research Council (MRC) about future RCUK funding opportunities. The event will provide an opportunity to hear about upcoming AMR related funding opportunities from RCUK and beyond and will showcase the exciting research going on in the field here at UCL. We will also have ample opportunity to network to forge new and exciting collaborations. Network activities have so far focused on PIs, however for this event we would like you to put forward your PDRAs and PhD students to present their research. They will be able to submit an abstract during registration for the event and the best abstracts will be chosen for research presentations. We hope to attract presenters who represent research across the four RCUK AMR research themes and beyond.

Location: Room 6.02, UCL Bartlett School of Architecture, 22 Gordon Street, London, WC1H 0QB

Time: 13:45:00 - 18:00:00

UCLPartners is pleased to host a live-stream of the TEDxNHS event. The main event has been hugely popular and is sold out, so you are very welcome to join us for all or part of the livestream. We’ll be showing it live, as a drop-in event, for our colleagues and partners who are interested. This year, the theme is ‘Inspired by People‘; the event brings together ordinary people who choose to do extraordinary things, and in doing so, become part of something greater than themselves. The speakers (yet to be announced) are individuals with inspirational stories and aspirational ideas, who come together on a national stage to share their stories. Please register your interest in joining us via Eventbrite and we will keep you up to date with the details. For more information visit www.TEDxNHS.com or search #inspiredbypeople on Twitter. We look forward to seeing you on the day.
