We invite you to participate in the Neurodegeneration Early Career Researcher Meeting, sponsored by Proteintech. The meeting is open to everyone from PhDs, to postdocs and early-stage fellows. Our aim is to create an event for early career researchers in neurodegeneration to present their work to an international audience. At a time when physical meetings are cancelled, we want to provide the opportunity for participants to network with other researchers in the field and help create collaborations and contacts which are so important in the early stages of academic careers.
This virtual meeting will consist of 4 talks by early career researchers, followed by an interactive question and answer session. Our keynote speaker, Prof Spires-Jones will close the session. The talks and Q&A will be moderated by an early-career fellow. There will be networking opportunities in the form of break-out rooms and chat forums.
