2020 Autumn meeting

We have adapted and modernised. The format will be a hybrid meeting, that will be live-streamed and interactive. All meeting attendees are asked to pre-register for the meeting.

Submit abstract

5pm on Friday 18th October 2019

The Widdowson Lecture

Professor Steve Charnock-Jones, University of Cambridge: 

Human placenta has no microbiome but can contain potential pathogens

The Keynote Lecture

Professor Paul Leeson, University of Oxford

Early life determinants of cardiovascular and cerebrovascular health

Oral presentations will be those selected for presentation for our cancelled Spring Meeting, and will be presented on November 5th in person or remotely. An abstract selection round is therefore not planned for this meeting.

At this time the Royal Society of Medicine is only allowing 30 people in the space to enable safe physical distancing, and this may change before the meeting. The majority of attendees will therefore need to attend virtually on this occasion and numbers will need to be managed carefully. If you would like to attend in person please contact the meetings secretary Dr Karen Luyt.
