Bridging the clinical - research gap 2022


The Healthcare Infection Society (HIS) and The Microbiology Society are delighted to co-host a second collaborative one-day workshop, Bridging the clinical - research gap in Birmingham on 29 September 2022. 

The workshop aims to bring academic and clinical microbiologists together to find ways to collaborate meaningfully, with the aim of improving the translation of research into advances in infection prevention and control. There will be ample opportunity for members of both societies to network and identify areas of interest for potential collaborations, and the opportunity to speak to funders to facilitate those collaborations.

Attendees will hear from experienced scientists and clinicians and learn about the realities of collaborations – both things to remember and things to watch out for – before participating in a workshop that will answer some common questions.


This workshop has been approved by the Royal Society of Biology for purposes of CPD; this event may be counted as 21 CPD credits.

Accreditation will also be sought from the Royal College of Pathologists.
