Meet the Committee

The Early Careers Network Committee is here to serve early and mid-career researchers who work in the field of personalised medicine across UCL.


Our goal is to be inclusive and responsive to the needs of UCL’s early career scientists. We therefore ask that you contact us with questions, comments and suggestions on the sort of events and activities that you would like the network to run.
