Information about symposium
The symposium is intended to provide an update on current research in the area of tuberculosis (with a particular focus on TB in the UK), with the day including talks across the research spectrum, from pre-clinical subjects such as genomics and promotion factors, through current trials for TB vaccines and on to clinical bioaerosol research and the research activity of the London Find and Treat team. There will also be a presentation on a systematic analysis of infectious disease research investments awarded to UK institutions, with particular focus on the TB portfolio.
It will be a varied day and delegates are invited to stand up and be counted in the speed-pitch sessions! You have three minutes to promote your own research, shout out about what you're doing and invite colleagues to corner you during the lunchbreak and ask further questions. This type of session has been used at previous IDRN and LSHTM events with some success. So if you are looking for collaboration opportunities, do see below.
There will also be the opportunity to present posters on TB too. Any TB-related topic is fine, and if you get the chance to reuse a poster you presented once at a conference previously, that's fine too. See below for further information.
