Discoveries made by researchers are leading to innovations and concepts that improve people’s lives. If you are at the “cutting edge” you are most probably involved in your field’s most important or most exciting developments. Postcards from the cutting edge is a conference that explores the personal experiences of researchers who have navigated the cutting edge or are steering themselves towards it. This year our keynote is Dr Darrin Morrissey CEO of the Health Research Board.
This conference is aimed at all staff and will showcase speakers from diverse disciplines with varied perspectives who will explore their own experience of the “cutting edge” and its impact on them personally.
