In 2016, PCRS-UK hosted a workshop ‘Aspiring and Inspiring Early Career Researchers’ to bring together those interested in research, particularly those starting out on a respiratory research career path. As well as sessions on research skills, we discussed how we could best bring together those interested in respiratory research, and agreed that we would set up a network through which researchers could share ideas, funding opportunities, and get in touch with others in similar fields.
Copies of the presentations from the workshop are shown below - (for personal use only and not to be reused)
Feedback from delegates who attended the workshop highlighted the value of the workshop not only in terms of its content but also in its opportunity for participants to network with each other and share research issues and ideas.
Sharing ideas and resources
To further facilitate the sharing of ideas, resources and issues PCRS-UK has created an email group and an SMS e-group for research-interested members to share relevant texts and stay in touch with each other. If you wish to join the Research Network SMS group please contact us HERE. If you have any news you wish to share with your fellow respiratory researchers please contact us HERE and subject to approval we will circulate the news to members of the email group.
We are also hoping to develop a forum for researchers to list their particular research interests and share profiles.
