IVTS Mini-Fellowship networking session:
This year’s meeting includes a networking event for early career scientists to meet senior scientists and discuss potential opportunities for applying for an IVTS Research Mini-Fellowship. The Mini-Fellowships scheme supports research training opportunities for early career scientists in techniques which are not available at their home institution. The Fellowships allow early career scientists to set up collaborations with established scientists, learn new techniques useful for their own research and aims to promote further career development in the field of in vitro toxicology research. For more information about the scheme visitwww.ivts.org.uk/site/early-career-support.

Student bursaries:
Three student bursaries are available which will cover the cost of the meeting registration (but not travel or accommodation).  If you are interested in applying for a bursary visit www.ivts.org.uk/site/early-career-support
