Our network organises tri-annual events which take place at partner institutes across the UK. These events are designed to put the spotlight on areas of specialist IGT research, stimulate new ideas and promote collaborations. The network offers its members funding support for travel to these events. We also list a range of other IGT events from the community, if you would like to add your listing please contact email@example.com.
This June our IGT Network+ Meeting will be hosted by King’s College London and will include a range of talks from academics covering cardiac ablation therapy, MR guided interventions and remote reconstructive surgery. As ever, the event will include plenty of time for connecting with colleagues from the Network+. Registration is now open via Eventbrite.
The event will also see the first Early Career Researcher Workshop, organised by ECRs, for ECRs. This session will cover a range of talks tailored to the audience along with a dedicated platform for ECR presentations.
We’re delighted to share the provisional agenda below and encourge all IGT Network+ members to register. Please note that we are running this event as two seperate sessions, you will have the option to specify sessions during registration. We encourage members to attend both sessions where possible to support our junior Network+ members.
The Network+ has limited funding to support travel to the meeting. Please contact Rahima Begum to enquire about availability.
Please also note this meeting is limited to members of the IGT Network+. If you are not already a member please complete the process at http://image-guided-therapies.ac.uk/contact-us.
