Diabetes UK is pleased to announce the launch of the Harry Keen Intermediate Clinical Fellowship. This fellowship has been established in recognition of the life and work of Professor Harry Keen, a clinical pioneer who helped to shape the understanding of diabetes and its treatment.
This Fellowship enables outstanding medically qualified professionals, and other clinically qualified professionals, including nurses, pharmacists and members of the Allied Health Professions, who have gained a PhD or equivalent, to establish themselves as independent researchers with a view to a long-term career as a clinical research leader in the field of diabetes.
The deadline for preliminary applications is 16 March 2015.
Welcome to the home page of the North Europe Young Diabetologists (NEYD) meeting
What is NEYD?
NEYD is a small friendly research meeting. It provides an opportunity for young diabetes researchers (like yourself!) to present their research (including research in progress) to peers from other North European countries. You can submit your abstract here. This year the meeting is going to be held in the Netherlands. Thanks to Sponsorship from Beoringher-Ingelheim it is FREE for UK attendees.
What is the meeting like?
This is a really enjoyable, informal, residential, meeting with the opportunity to gain feedback on not only on your research and its presentation, but also on presentation skills. The best 10 candidates from each of the UK, Netherlands and Denmark meet and get to present and discuss their work. More experienced researchers are on hand to guide and critique... and there will be a few drinks in the evening!
