Making progress research networking day 2016

The registration date for this event has now passed, if you're interested in attending please email research@prostatecanceruk.org.

 

This event is for early stage prostate cancer researchers, by invitation only.

Event Date: Friday 12 October 2018

Background

We feel it is important to support and encourage the early career researchers we are funding, in order to build the next generation of leading prostate cancer researchers.

This annual event will provide you a prime opportunity to: establish connections with other researchers at a similar stage in their career; meet and hear from some of the leading prostate cancer researchers in the UK; learn more about the work of Prostate Cancer UK; and obtain key skills and advice to help you forge a successful career in prostate cancer research.

What you will get from attending

  • The opportunity to attend a networking and communication skills workshop, providing useful hints and tips for building your research networks.
  • The chance to meet and hear from a leading prostate cancer researcher in the UK.
  • The chance to establish links with other Prostate Cancer UK funded early career researchers at a similar stage in their career and hear about their research.
  • An opportunity to hear personal experiences of living with Prostate Cancer. 

In addition...

  • Reasonable travel expenses will be reimbursed for anyone funded through a Prostate Cancer UK grant. Attendees are encouraged to make use of advance purchase tickets where possible to minimise the cost to the charity. Travel claims for those further afield will be capped at £150. If your travel is likely to exceed this value please contact the office before booking your travel to discuss this further. If you are not in a Prostate Cancer UK funded post, then you will need to cover your own expenses to attend the event.
  •  One night accommodation is available for those living over 2 hours away from the venue (accommodation must be booked by Prostate Cancer UK. Any accommodation not booked by the charity will not be reimbursed). Requests for accommodation after Thursday 13 September 2018 will not be considered. Again if you are not in a Prostate Cancer UK funded post, then you will need to cover your own expenses to attend the event. 
  • Refreshments and lunch will be provided during the event for all attendees
