This event is aimed at Infection Healthcare Scientists who want to develop research that is provided by the NIHR Clinical Research Network (CRN). This will be a great opportunity to hear about support for research including the NIHR Research Design Service, funding schemes, tips on how to work with Industry and the role of the NIHR MedTech and In Vitro Diagnostic Cooperatives (MICs), Clinical Trials Units and the CRN itself.
There will be plenty of opportunities to network and discuss the challenges Healthcare Scientists face in undertaking research, as well as presentations from experienced Infection researchers.
Early career researchers (ECR) definition
Health care professionals in training posts or within 5 years of appointment to substantive (or equivalent) positions (excluding career breaks, and extended pro rata for those in less than full time work). Special consideration will be given to those who can demonstrate that they were only able to take up research opportunities later in their career. The term healthcare professionals includes, but is not limited to: radiographers; psychologists; occupational therapists; physiotherapists; genetic counsellors; clinical pharmacists; biomedical scientists; dentists; doctors; nurses; health, public health or social care professionals; midwifery; and allied health professionals. The inclusion of the “later in their career” clause allows the network to include “research returners” in this approach, something that all our specialties considered important.
