Sign up at https://www.eventbrite.co.uk/e/wirn-dr-veena-ohalloran-tickets-49647284364

This is the second of the new series of the WIRN (Women in Research Network). Though the network was originally aimed at female colleagues, everyone is encouraged to attend this event and they are designed to cover all job families. This particular event may appeal to those considering roles outside of research and those in professional services roles.

In this session we are very pleased that Dr Veena O’Halloran will be presenting. As someone who has made the transition from academia to professional services, Dr O'Halloran will be discussing both alternative careers for academics and also personal development in professional services roles. This will be followed by a Q&A session.

The meeting starts at 1200 with the discussion session from1300.


Hope to see you there

Best wishes

Dr Jennifer Logue MBChB MRCP MD FRCPath
