Respiratory Research Day: Universities of Nottingham, Leicester and @NottmBRCLung, @LeicesterBRC
The Joint Respiratory Research Day 2023 took place at the Jubilee Conference Centre on 12th May 2023. Delivered in partnership with the University of Leicester, the day brought together respiratory researchers from Nottingham and Leicester Respiratory NIHR Biomedical Research Centre's at all career stages including PhD students, post docs, clinical fellows and research nurses.
With a Key Note talk from Prof Ashley Woodcock, University of Manchester, the event showcased the work of Nottingham BRC and Leicester BRC researchers with a programme of fascinating oral presentations and an exhibition of over 30 posters.
