This year's (2012) BRS/NOS New Investigator session will consist of two sessions.

Firstly Dr Kay Guccione, researcher development advisor from the University of Sheffield, will be leading an interactive session on effective networking giving practical guidance as to how to improve your research
profile. This follows on from her key contribution to the 1st BRS New Investigator workshop held in Sheffield last July (2011), which was given such positive feedback.

After tea we will move on to focus on CV writing and how to market yourself on paper. Ensure you bring your own CV to get the most from this session! You will be able to seek confidential and constructive feedback as to the layout and content of your CV from a range of established researchers with basic, translational and clinical backgrounds.

The whole afternoon will be informal, is open to all basic and clinical researchers, and should be fun!

Although the session ends at 5.30pm, there will be a general migration to a local hostelry to put your newly acquired networking skills to the test!

This session is free to those attending the BRS/NOS conference, just tick the box at registration

And don't forget travel bursaries are available to New Investigators who are BRS members, by application
