The Academy's Clinical Academics in Training Annual Conference (CATAC) is a unique cross specialty event designed to bring clinical academic trainees together to present their work, meet one another and network with senior researchers. What was previously the Spring Meeting, CATAC is the result of the evolution of the prestigious meeting following an independent evaluation, you can read more here.

Our keynote speakers will be Dr Katherine Sleeman, NIHR Clinician Scientist and Honorary Consultant in palliative medicine, King's College London, speaking about her 'Adventures in academia: from womb to tomb' and Professor Ed Bullmore, Professor of Psychiatry, University of Cambridge, author of 'The Inflamed Mind: a radical new approach to depression'.
