This is the fourth annual meeting of the UK’s IBD investigators (previous meetings took place in Edinburgh, Birmingham and Cardiff). This meeting, taking place in Nottingham only a few miles from Beeston and Nottingham stations and the M1 and near East Midlands Airport, is open to all members of the IBD MDT, including nurses, trainees and trials managers – not just IBD Consultants and PIs.

There will be information on current, active trials, lessons to be learned, how nurses and trainees can get started doing clinical research, research and audit networks, and using registry data for research – among other topics! The opportunities for networking will be huge. We will be applying for CPD as well.

The meeting is free to attend but most delegates must support their own travel costs; a limited number of travel bursaries might become available in September.
