‘The NEPG conference is the largest student led annual biomedical conference in the UK, offering postgraduate students valuable presentation and networking opportunities with their peers.
Here at the NEPG, we pride ourselves on being a highly inclusive event, and in order to keep up with current global events, we can confirm that we have Hub Locations at the following Universities. We hope, that by expanding our physical presence across multiple locations, we can continue to attract postgraduate researchers from a wide selection of universities, as well as improving accessibility for those attending.
We are in the process of organising this hybrid conference. Therefore, confirmations on locations will follow.
