ECR Programme and Speakers - APAM 2023

The Early Career Researchers Workshop is open to all member and non-member Clinical Fellows / PhD Students, Clinical Lecturers, Intermediate Fellows and Research Active clinicians (Pre-CCT). We warmly encourage non-members to join the Association and enjoy the benefits of membership.

The Early Career Researchers Workshop provides a vital opportunity to focus on practical themes as part of in-depth conversations. We have again put together a very exciting programme for the Early Career Researchers Workshop focussing on the pathways and networks which will support you as an ECR. At last year’s meeting in Dublin, we offered advice from senior clinician scientists on how to write a successful grant application, and renowned scientists Professor Ursula Fearon and Professor Luke O’Neill joined us to discuss how they engage patients and the public in clinical research. Please see below for this year’s programme and speakers.

There is a networking supper evening arranged on 19th April for ECRs, followed by the Workshop on 20th April in the morning.
