Early Career Professionals

Did you know that over 2000 biomedical science delegates attended ELRIG conferences in the last 12 months, all at no charge? Of these, nearly 400 are ‘early career professionals’, or ECPs – either students in undergraduate, PhD or first post-doctoral positions or scientists that are just setting out on their industrial career path. These ECPs are critical contributors to ELRIG, bringing new science, fresh ideas and energy to every event.

Building such networks is an imperative for ECPs as they navigate the myriad collaboration and career options ahead of them. As part of the 2019 ELRIG events programme, there will be a range of activities designed specifically for early career professionals.
