ELRIG Networking event at Vertex

Published on: 05/06/2018

ELRIG Networking events are a great way to get to know other like-minded individuals in your local area. Since the end of 2016, we have been running regular networking meetings in various locations throughout the UK.

ELRIG is a not for profit organization, whose mission is to provide outstanding, leading edge knowledge to the life sciences community on an open access basis which is free for delegates to attend. ELRIG networking events are an extension of this ethos.

The meetings are usually held in the evening and involve short presentations by invited speakers followed by a complementary food and drinks  reception to facilitate further networking.

ELRIG Networking event: Immunology and Oncology Science & Technology.
Thursday 14th June 2018: 5.30pm – 8.30pm (Registration from 5pm)

ELRIG are pleased to announce our first free-to-attend networking event in Oxford. Following the success of our 2017 meetings in Cambridge, Alderley Park and Medicity Scotland, we continue our focus of developing networking opportunities for unmet scientific or technical challenges. This event will focus on the challenges & development of new and existing research in Immuno-oncology and their potential applications as new therapeutic agents.

The meeting will involve short, informal presentations by our guest speakers  from academia and industry which encourage and foster collaboration and opportunities between local researchers. Through enhanced collaboration between scientists from academia, pharma / biotech and the technology industry, we want to offer the opportunity to create a truly unique and open forum to engage researchers in a beneficial manner and in a local environment. The presentations will be followed by a free food and drinks reception to facilitate further networking.

Our event sponsors in Oxford are Evotec and Miltenyi and we are generously hosted by Vertex in Milton Park, Abingdon, one of the UKs major science parks and home to many key Biotech, Pharma and CRO players in the drug discovery arena.
