The next annual research symposium of the BHF Oxbridge CRM will take place on Friday 29 September 2017 at the Royal Society.

Similarly to previous years, this event will be free but we will need to restrict the number of delegates due to the venue size, and advance registration will be essential. Registration instructions will be sent to CRM investigators and recruits closer to the meeting date.

Programme has been copied below and can be downloaded here.

Please contact Katja if you have any questions about this event.
