About BBMS

BBMS 2019 will take place on Friday March 8th at Jesus College, Cambridge.

Building Bridges in Medical Sciences is a one-day conference that brings together scientists from different disciplines, career stages and countries. The conference emphasises the need for interdisciplinary approaches to tackle the biomedical research and global health challenges of the 21st century.

BBMS is aimed at graduate students and early career researchers who want to better understand the current state of cutting-edge biomedical research and develop useful connections to other scientists across a variety of fields.

Do join us for an enriching and enlightening day of talks and networking!
