Royal Society of Tropical Medicine and Hygiene Research in Progress – Neglected tropical diseases: now more than ever

A one-day meeting for young researchers and students to present unpublished 'research in progress' through short oral presentations and posters.

The call for abstracts opened on 2 September and closes on 30 September. Applicants are invited to compete for the opportunity to present their unpublished research in progress. RSTMH is particularly seeking abstracts from:

  • Undergraduates and graduates in all disciplines relating to international health, including science, medicine and economics
  • Young clinical research fellows
  • Post-doctoral workers with less than five years research experience
  • Individuals undertaking research in NGOs

Cash prizes will be awarded to the presenter of the best papers and the best posters. All prize-winners will be encouraged to submit a short communication to one of the RSTMH's journals.

The Manson Christmas Lecture will be the opening plenary of the meeting. This year's lecture will be delivered by Professor David Molyneux and will be titled:

  • Neglected Tropical Diseases: now more than just the "other diseases": the post 2015 agenda
