6th Annual ECS Research Symposium

6th Annual ECS Research Symposium
The Society for Applied Microbiology and the ECS committee are proud to invite undergraduate, postgraduate and early career scientists to attend and participate in the 6th ECS Research Symposium on 19 April 2017 at University of Westminster, London.

Join us as we showcase original research conducted by amazing early career scientists, with a skills building session in the afternoon. The ECS Research Symposium provides individuals with a forum to share developing ideas, theories and results across a broad range of microbiological topics.

This year we’re excited to incorporate a bioinformatics workshop suitable for all levels of experience. Delegates are not required to bring their own data with them. The session will provide hands-on training focused on bioinformatics and computational biology. The workshop activities are specifically aimed at enabling life scientists to effectively handle and interpret biological data.

The symposium is also an opportunity for students to present their work to a friendly audience, so share with us the research that you are passionate about!! There are no restrictions as to the field or topic of study and we are very open to, and highly encourage, creative submissions.
