Research Day is an annual showcase of the research at St George’s, University of London.  It is an opportunity to find out more about the exciting discoveries taking place and a chance to engage colleague from other areas in your work.



Submissions are welcome from all and in particular research students, post-doctoral research assistants and principal investigators.  It is an excellent chance to show off your research.


 We are pleased to announce that this year we will once again be able to offer an exceptional poster prize of £1000 for the most innovative research poster.  The Chrissie Fenske Research Poster Prize has been funded by a generous donation in memory of the late Dr Chrissie Fenske, by Chrissie’s husband and brother.  Chrissie worked at St George’s and was passionate about the scope and potential for gene research.  This will be an annual price running for a period of approximately 13 years. 

Registration is free and gives you access to the abstract submission page plus lunch on the day.
