Building on the success of this conference in 2014, 2015 and 2016 this year’s conference is sure to make a difference to your research journey. There will be streams of workshops designed to improve your professional and personal impact – no matter what stage you are at in your career. In addition, we will have a poster presentation from the newly qualified cohort of NIHR/HEE ICA interns, interactive Q&A sessions, community spaces and a challenging range of keynote speeches from some of the leading UK and North West health and academic leaders.

We are also pleased to announce the Call for Papers and invite presenters to submit abstracts for presentations and workshops.  We want to hear about your explorations and how you have helped build the research community. We particularly welcome contributions from clinicians, early career researchers, clinical academics, patients involved in research and members of the public. The closing date for all abstracts is Friday 14th April at 5pm. Please see links below:
