*** Meeting registration closes at BST 5pm on 25 August 2017 ***

Abstract submission is encouraged, and registration is essential.

As before, our primary focus is on providing a platform to explore issues relevant to clinicians involved – or interested in getting involved – in research. This event is open to all, and is free to attend.

This year we will be covering 3 areas of particular contemporary interest:

  • Patient and public involvement in research
  • How to build a successful mentor/mentee relationship? We have also included a “Speed-Mentoring” session to give a taster for potential mentees – sign up via this embedded link!
  • How do doctors in training get involved in clinical trials?

In addition, complementary lunch will be provided from 12:00, and a poster session will showcase current clinical academic research with a £50 prize (Amazon voucher) for the best poster presented. If you are interested in entering this competition, please submit your abstract via our Google Form link (abstract submission closes on 18 August 2017).

Finally, there will be opportunities for your professional profile photographs to be taken.

Date: *change of date* Friday 10th November

Time: 12:15pm-5pm

This workshop provides a platform to think about communicating our own research succinctly, both in writing and in a soft interview.

It also means that researchers will have the opportunity to make a short professionally-edited video about their own research, which the researchers could put on their own or UoG profile pages.

Please contact CiRN at for more information.

What it’s all about?

Making the most of your research

You are working on something wonderful. But how do you let other people know? Your message has to be succinct, easily understood and well delivered.

This workshop aims to give you the tools and confidence to present your research in front of camera – whether to other academics, or the public.

What do you need to bring?


Bring a written script of 2 to 3 minutes. Write it like you are telling it to someone else. We’ll work on editing, changing the style and picking out what matters. And more importantly, making sure you feel comfortable delivering it in front of camera. By the end, you’ll produce a 2-minute video summary of your work.
