The training workshop on Clinical Complications in Maternal and Fetal Health took place at St George's University Hospital in London. It allowed the early-stage researchers (ESR) to engage with research-focused clinicians, non-academic professionals and representatives of patient groups in order to gain a better understanding of the potential translational outcomes of their research for the patients’ benefit.
It also marked the first physical meeting of the ESR team. There was lots of opportunity to discuss research projects, the many ways of collaborating in the network, and what it feels like to be a PhD student in an MSCA ITN!
Welcome to all ESRs starting in October, and hello from Dundee!
