Now in it’s fourth year, this meeting has rapidly become the highlight of the Society’s activities. We have purposely designed the meeting around young researchers, whether at postgraduate. post doctoral or early stage fellows and lecturers. Following on from the ethos established at the previous meetings in Liverpool, Swansea and Belfast, we want our presenters to enjoy the experience in a laidback, inclusive and supportive environment. 

This year ECRM 2018 is hosted by UCL and will be held at The Francis Crick Institute, London on 6th – 7th August.

We are thankful to the following sponsors:
