The University of Manchester Innovation Centre,
What is ‘trustworthy’ research, and how do you generate and communicate it?
This event is open to all and free but places are limited, please register to secure a place.
Chaired by Professor Dame Nicky Cullum DBE FMedSci, Head of School and Professor of Nursing, University of Manchester, our keynote speaker is Professor Max Parmar, Professor of Medical Statistics and Epidemiology and Director of the MRC Clinical Trials Unit and the Institute of Clinical Trials and Methodology, University College London. This event will feature sessions to help you:
- Achieve excellence when collaborating with industry.
- Make the most of your press office to communicate your research.
- Use statistics to build further confidence in your research.
Our Career Development events are for pre- and post-doctoral researchers in biomedicine and health, to give practical skills and the chance to network with colleagues. They also offer clinical academic trainees help in navigating the clinical academic training pathway and developing a research career. We will be exploring the findings and recommendations of the Academy's recent policy report, 'Enhancing the use of scientific evidence' and how they can be helpful to early career researchers.
We have carried out a wide-ranging review to consider how every step of the journey, from initial research to a new medicine, can be relevant and robust, trustworthy, and communicated effectively. We want the research community to work together to help ensure we strengthen the use of scientific evidence by the public, patients and professionals.
