17 January, 2017 - UCL Populations & Lifelong Health Domain Symposium - The future health of the public: Towards transdisciplinary research
This one-day conference, organised by the UCL Populations & Lifelong Health Domain, will showcase transdisciplinary research taking place at UCL in population health. Talks are planned on a diverse range of themes including healthy cities, digital health and antimicrobial resistance. The event will provide an opportunity to hear from funders about their plans for the future funding of transdisciplinary research and there will be time for discussions with funders, users of funded research and plenty of opportunity to network with colleagues and build new collaborations. We are also holding an abstract competition for early career researchers around the session themes (healthy cities, digital health and antimicrobial resistance). The deadline for submitting abstracts is Friday 18 November. We strongly encourage attendance from staff across all of UCL at all career levels.
