The 'Savant Thakur ECR Workshop' is intended for junior researchers (honours, PhD and up to 10 years post-PhD).
The topic of this years workshop will be announced mid-year
The AuPS council have named the event the Savant Thakur ECR Workshop to honour the memory of Savant Thakur, an active student member of the AuPS Society. Savant was a brilliant, dedicated and high-achieving student who overcame considerable adversity to become an inspirational scientist, undertaking research to find a cure for DMD and be a help to so many others. While he had faced challenges over the years to treat his condition, Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy, Savant had an amazing impact on all he met.
The student and ECR mixer is on Monday evening.
More details to follow mid-year.
