Call for abstracts: Young Researchers’ Futures Meeting 2018

February 8, 2018

Nano-engineering approaches to biomedical science.

The Panel for Biomedical Engineering organises this biennial, multi-disciplinary meeting to attract the best young engineers and scientists from throughout the UK.

The meeting provides a unique forum for early-career researchers to showcase their work with opportunities for mentoring and guidance on scientific and professional opportunities from selected experts across academia and industrial, and clinicalsectors.

The aim is to encourage feedback, promote interdisciplinary collaboration between the delegates and explore new ways of doing things.

This year’s meeting will focus on nanoengineering approaches in biomedical science.

Topics covered will include nanoengineering approaches in ophthalmology, microfluidic technologies, nanosurfaces, nanoscale materials for bone tissue engineering, and engineering and clinical approaches for tremor (Parkinson’s disease) treatment. There will also be presentations from senior clinicians and industry experts, and opportunities for mentoring and career guidance for both academic and non-academic pathways including entrepreneurship and spin out companies.

Places at the event are limited. The conference is aimed at post-doctoral researchers but exceptional PhD students may be accepted if space allows.

Accommodation, meals and registration will be provided free of charge for the researchers selected to attend the event.

The deadline for submissions is Friday 6th April.

To apply to attend please send a short statement as to how you will benefit from the meeting (250 words), a brief CV and an abstract of your research to nicola.eckersley-waites@raeng.org.uk.
