Association of Physicians of GB and Ireland

The Association of Physicians of Great Britain and Ireland (AoP) actively organise and promote a number of different events and webinars throughout the year for both members and non members who are interested in translational medicine. This year the annual meeting is being held in Liverpool, 20th and 21st April 2023.

We all regularly attend meetings in our specialty area, but the solution to many of today’s research challenges lies in ideas from outside of our specialty and from across disciplines. To meet leaders and talented young researchers in other fields, to hatch novel ideas and find inspiring new collaborators that you will not encounter at any other meeting, please join us.

The 2023 Programme will feature Five symposia focusing on key interdisciplinary translational themes:

Infectious Diseases / Genomics / Data Science / Neurological Diseases / Open Themes

We have an exciting array of speakers including Sir Patrick Vallance, Professor Sharon Peacock, Professor Tom Solomon, and Professor Dame Pamela Shaw to name just a few.

Next Meeting is "The Long Covid Syndrome - What's New" 23 February 2023 - Click here to download full details

AGM is 20/21 April - Click here to download full details
