North-East Postgraduate Conference 2021 – Abstract Call!

The North East Postgraduate Conference 2021: Empowering and Connecting Postgraduate Students

Abstract submission for NEPG 2021 is now open until midnight on the 3rd September 2021!

The North East Postgraduate Conference (NEPG) is a conference built by postgraduate students, for postgraduate students.  Whether this is your first conference, or you are an experienced presenter, the NEPG provides a supportive environment for postgraduate students to share their biomedical research through oral presentations or posters. As well as an array of student-led talks covering interesting topics within medical and biomedical research, the NEPG also promises exciting keynote speakers, interactive workshop sessions, and a wide range of exhibitors. Due to current COVID-19 restrictions, this year the NEPG will be a virtual event held on the 11th and 12th of November 2021. 

The theme of NEPG 2021 is Empowerment: Connect with fellow researchers, Empower your scientific mind, to Innovate in the changing world!

  • EMPOWER: Imposter syndrome amongst postgraduate students is more prevalent than ever, meaning it is vital that we take opportunities to empower both ourselves and others by giving out support and encouragement. Furthermore, the NEPG represents a brilliant opportunity to empower postgraduate students within the north and highlight the outstanding research they produce.
  • CONNECT: As the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic continues to restrict opportunities to network in-person, we need to create opportunities for postgraduate students to connect with each other, as well as with key field-leaders. The NEPG fosters an inclusive and supportive environment which enables postgraduate students to do just this.
  • INNOVATE: Postgraduate students as a collective have a huge amount of knowledge covering an infinite variety of subjects. Together, we have the power and the ability to innovate and change the world.

These skills and qualities have become increasingly valuable as the world continues to change as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. The NEPG provides a brilliant opportunity to hear from keynote speakers and partake in workshops relevant to the theme of empowerment.

The importance of empowering, connecting, and innovating span all aspects of life, both in- and outside of science. By working together in a supportive environment, we really do become capable of almost anything!

We anticipate NEPG 2021 being a fantastic experience for attendees and presenters. For more information about NEPG 2021, please visit:
