The reason why I’m absolutely delighted to be able to welcome you to this conference today is because it gives me the opportunity to thank those people who’ve been absolutely incredible in putting together this conference for us.
The thing I think was most special about this conference, and it is something that, talking to other Theme Leads, we all agreed on, and it was the quality, but also the quantity of work presented by early career researchers. Even in a year as disrupted as this one’s been, there was so much high-quality physiology on show.
What I think is special about this conference is how international this conference has been. I’ve met people from all across Europe, from Canada, from America, from Africa, from South America. It’s really been amazing how international this conference really has been and I just think it’s really special.
I was so excited to be presenting. The Future Physiology conference is such an amazing place for early career researchers to get together. You get to see what your peers are up to and what exciting research is going on.
