This workshop will comprise inspiring presentations, followed by discussions around potential new collaborative research projects and the development of ideas for grant proposals. We expect research discussions to focus on accelerating translational research into drug delivery systems that could one day be used to treat brain diseases, including children’s brain tumours.
An exciting addition for the 2020 workshop is the opportunity to apply for pump prime funding (max £5k per project), offered exclusively to workshop delegates. The Principal Investigator must attend the workshop and be a non-tenured researcher. We are particularly encouraging post-doctoral researchers and clinical fellows to lead these funding bids, but where senior group leaders can support the bids as Co-Investigators where required. Awards will be made on the day, prioritizing ideas developed during the workshop.
More details will be added to the programme in Autumn 2019.
