About the FMHS-FLS Research Forum:
Enhancing FMHS-FLS biomedical research collaborations is a high priority. To advance cross-faculty links, a regular fortnightly series of informal topic-based cross-faculty research meetings (started in January 2013) aims to target ‘hot’ translational biomedical topics that are very likely to benefit from strong cross-faculty research links.
The format is flexible, but usually involves short presentations with discussion, followed by break-out sessions with refreshments.
We wish to encourage and support cross-faculty collaborations leading to major new strategic funding and research outputs, and innovative research opportunities for clinical/non-clinical students.
Everyone is welcome to attend.
Full details of each individual topic(s), and the FMHS and FLS Lead PIs, will be circulated well in advance.
Funding support: a Research Strategy Coordinator from the FMHS Research Deanery (www.manchester.ac.uk/mhs/deanery) and an FLS Research Support Manager will be present at each Forum meeting, to provide targeted advice on internal and external funding.
Suggestions for future topics are strongly encouraged, please contact Cay Kielty.
