Next meeting - Friday 5th November

Register your interest: SPCR skin and allergy working group meeting

Good news! The NIHR School for Primary Care Research has agreed to support a joint skin and allergy workshop, meeting online on Friday 5 November, 10.00-15.00.

The main aim is to consolidate and extend existing collaborations (developed through the SAPC dermatology special interest group/NIHR SPCR allergy work group) and to prioritise and develop new research questions. Please note that you do NOT need to be a member of an NIHR SPCR institution in order to intend - in fact, collaboration outside of School members is encouraged.

Depending on interest, it is possible that break-out groups will work on prioritising topics, developing research proposals and forming collaborations in specific topic areas, e.g. eczema and allergy

If you would like to attend and/or present, please complete this brief MS form by 30 September
