Euro-British MD-PhD meeting

October 11, 2019 @ 2:30 pm - 11:30 pm


Friday the 11th of October (right BEFORE Boris’ eventual no-deal Brexit), MD-PhD students from the UK and the rest of Europe are warmly invited to come meet one another and discuss the variety of forms that an MD-PhD career can take across European countries. Future physician-scientist, if you ever wondered how you could best balance clinic and research during your career — importantly, not only during your studies but also later in life —, you should definitely come and listen to our speakers life stories.

In this edition:

Dr. Rupert Beale, MRC Clinician Scientist Fellow, group leader at the Crick Institute (https://www.crick.ac.uk/research/find-a-researcher/rupert-beale),

together with Dr. Stefan Marciniak, Professor of Respiratory Science, MRC Senior Clinical Research Fellow, Cambridge MB/PhD programme director (https://www.cimr.cam.ac.uk/research/principal-investigators/principal-investigators-i-p/marciniak),

who will both share the key events and experiences that shaped their MD-PhD career to hopefully inspire yours.
