Overview

The 11th SfAM Early Career Scientist (ECS) Research Symposium will be held on the 30th March 2022, at the Mercure Holland House, Cardiff. This return to face-to-face symposia will offer early career scientists the chance to present their work both orally and by poster, meet and network with ECS colleagues, and learn about the broad opportunities available to ECS from speakers across industry and academia.

The ECS Research Symposium offers a supportive environment for delegates to develop their presentation skills and receive supportive feedback from like-minded people. Drawing on over a decade of successful symposiums, this event is a great opportunity to engage with the microbiology community and expand your network.
