An afternoon of great research stories with a drinks reception to follow.

Registration and abstract submission
Abstract deadline: 30 September

In November we are once again hosting our annual research symposium. Over the course of the afternoon you’ll hear about the diverse work of your postdoc peers from across the UW and beyond.

As before we’re pleased to invite postdoctoral researchers from research institutions across Seattle, to join us.

Call for abstracts

The core of the afternoon will be 10 min presentations from postdocs about their current research. If you’d like to speak please submit a 200 word abstract when you register.

Keynote speaker: Prof Geoff Garnet, Gates Foundation

Our keynote speaker this year will be Geoff Garnet, Deputy Director of HIV at The Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation where he works on improving the effectiveness and sustainability of HIV programs. Geoff is also Professor of Microparasite Epidemiology at Imperial College London where his main area of research is the epidemiology and control of sexually transmitted infections.

We look forward to hearing about your exciting work later in the fall.

If you have any questions please email the symposium organizer, Adam Taylor (tayloraj@uw.edu).

Best wishes,

UWPA Committee
