Wrap-up, Prize Giving & AGM

The ESACT-UK organising committee will review the applications and select candidates for a full presentation (dependent on abstract being relevant to cell culture, committee decision is final). This year we are looking to maintain the increased proportion of early researchers in the scientific programme, so if you are an early career researcher (within 7 years of completing a BSc) and would like to present your work, please submit a high quality scientific abstract for oral or poster attached template presentation to Peter Archibald at [email protected] using the attached template. The deadline for abstract is Friday 19th November.

All attending early career researchers will be eligible for the prize for the best presentation (£500 bursary for an event of their choice) and best poster (£250 bursary for an event of their choice).

The early stage researcher must be a member of ESACT-UK, but it is free to join for students.
