This year's Early Careers Research day will take place on Thursday 2 November in the McGrath Centre, St Catharine's College, and will be a collaboration between Cardiovascular SRI & Metabolic SRN to help connect researchers in these two networks.

We welcome Profs Sue Ozanne, Steve O'Rahilly, and Khalid Naseem, and Dr Magnus Althage as our keynote speakers. Additionally, Prof Toni Vidal-Puig will give us an overview of the Cardio-Metabolic research theme in the planned Heart & Lung Research Institute (HLRI).

This year's research themes include:

  • Developmental programming in cardio-metabolic disease
  • Inflammation & platelet function in cardio-metabolic disease
  • Mechanisms of obesity & its cardio-metabolic effects
  • Translational science: From bench to bedside

The event will be open to all and will be free but we will be restricted to ~100 delegates by the venue size and we will therefore ask you to register here by 31 October 2017. Please contact Vicky Reid if you have any problems with registration.

This year's draft programme has been copied below. Previous years' programmes are available for 2015 and 2016. Hope to see you on 2nd November!
