After the success of the Early Career Researchers (ECR) day at the 60th ASM, a similar ECR specific day will be held in Manchester on Tuesday 5th of September. In addition, we also will hold a new event for Mid Career Researchers (MCR) on that day.


The Festival of Public Health, 2017, is taking place at the University of Manchester on Tuesday 5th of September. This is a perfect opportunity for delegates to attend both conferences.
