The Malaria Network is looking for new management committee members and suggestions to take it forward in the coming years
The Imperial Malaria Network is now two years old and in that time has seen seminars from a number of invited guest speakers, a Symposium in honour of Prof Bob Sinden, a Schools Outreach Day, and a growth in membership of over 40% in the past 12 months.
Later this year, the network have organised by far the biggest representation of malaria research at an Imperial Festival, and for the first time it will have its own area at the upcoming Great Exhibition Road Festival. And In September, the network will be hosting a London Malaria Networking event at the Crick, bringing together London's malaria researchers for a unique event to encourage greater collaboration and make the best use of London's malaria resources. The network is currently looking for presentation proposals for this meeting, which can be downloaded here. Please send completed proposal forms to Aubrey Cunnington by 5pm, Friday 14th June.
The network is now looking to expand its Management Committee and look for new ideas to make a bigger impact and serve more opportunities to its members.
Join the committee
The Management Committee has a role overseeing the activities and strategy of the Network and it’s time to update its membership. It meets approximately every three months. Current members are Jake Baum, Aubrey Cunnington, Delphine Thizy, Mauricio Barahona, Christo Hall, Tom Churcher, Anna Barnard. We are now seeking nominations from network members to either join or remain on the committee. We hope to expand the committee to approximately ten members, including at least two early career representatives. Please complete the short form by 31st May via the link at this bottom of this article to nominate yourself.
What else would you like the Imperial Malaria Network to do?
We would like your suggestions for network seminar speakers and topics, and for future network activities.
