CRUK RADNET - Manchester
Following on from the hugely successful CRISPR workshop run at The CRICK in 2022, and taking on board CRUK feedback, the ambitions of the RadNet Unit Directors and the opinions of the RadNet community, we have organised a new workshop for the 17th Nov 2023: ‘Enabling Research with Complex Technologies’.
This is an exciting opportunity to expand the CRISPR workshop and encompass other complex technologies including: Expression profiling (spatial transcriptomics, proteomics), complex modelling and computational approaches – all to address a broad range of radiation research questions.
The ambition of this new workshop is to democratise access and knowledge for researchers across our network; to support people to undertake collaborative research that may currently be limited to those working at a larger research unit; and to encourage our community to take advantage of the expertise that exists within our network to ‘come and learn’ at designated hubs.
Researchers will be given the opportunity to post questions specific to a particular technology ahead of the workshop. These questions will be used to shape multiple breakout sessions, each around a common theme, and initiate relevant, useful discussion. With contributions from specific teams & access to facilities at e.g. CRUK-AZ Functional Genomics Centre it would enable the development of new research ideas, whereby people leave equipped with the knowledge, toolkit and support networks to go forward at their own centres.
This workshop will be aimed at attracting basic discovery scientists at all levels (PhD, PDRA, research fellow) as well as clinical research fellows working in the field from both RadNet and non-RadNet Centres. This event is aimed at early/mid-career researchers with basic science, translational and/or clinical backgrounds, including allied health professionals.
