The Research Day will offer an excellent opportunity for young investigators at all levels of training to showcase their research in a friendly enthusiastic environment. Delegates will improve their research skills, get inspired by colleague’s presentations and get ideas for potential research topics.

If you work or are thinking of working within paediatric rheumatology and have an interest in research, this is a great event to get guidance and network in an intimate and informal setting.
