For the first time the UCL Queen Square Institute of Neurology ran an all-day career event (9 July) aimed at PhD students and early career researchers. Speakers were recruited from across industry, the charitable sector and academia to provide an insight into their career path and their current role. Participants were offered the chance to meet speakers after their talk for one to one sessions, and there was also time to network during breaks and at the drinks reception.
The Institute thanked Dr Helene Pun-Favreau for chairing and for organising the event with Ms Anna Foakes, Ms Elizabeth Halton, Dr Giovanna Lalli (UK DRI Director of Scientific Affairs) and Mr David Blundred (Careers Liaison Officer). The event was also live streamed thanks to support from the Institutes Medical Illustration team and UCL media services, and some recordings from the day can be watched by following the links below.
