The Junior Investigator meeting aims to provide delegates with guidance on how to design and run successful clinical research studies.


The meeting format will be a mixture of presentations, panel discussions, networking sessions and a proposal guidance workshop. The proposal guidance workshop offers delegates an opportunity to present and receive feedback on proposals from the multidisciplinary faculty of UK experts. The interactive nature of this meeting will facilitate engaging discussion and best practice sharing and will also provide an opportunity for delegates to engage with their peers and to foster new networks and collaborations for the future.
