Every Breath Counts - early career network launch!


The Every Breath Counts Coalition (EBC) Research Group is launching a PhD and early career researcher network to support emerging researchers working across any discipline in the area of pneumonia!

Joining the network:

If you know suitable candidates, we would be very grateful if you could forward the information to them!

If you are a PhD student or early career researcher, please sign up using this form: https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLSexFm5SwJkjHcQyxQf5uvnCOHgmXHFbmyrsH8Ie50XmTJDDOw/viewform

About the network:

A key challenge that has been raised in pneumonia research is the lack of visible champions, and the concern that this discourages early career researchers from actively seeking out this area of research. Therefore, the purpose of this network is to try and ensure that the next generation of pneumonia researchers are starting with a strong and diverse network to help them gain visibility early, and that this can catalyse both increased funding and impact. The goal is to build a network to have 70% emerging pneumonia researchers from low-resource contexts, so we are particularly interested in nominations from these regions.

The network will be facilitated through a LinkedIn group to allow for informal networking, and supported by the EBC Research Group. We plan to publish a monthly blog on the EBC website to promote the members and their research, as well as spotlighting novel research findings. We are keen that the network is responsive to the needs and wants of early career researchers, and once established will  explore further activities and support that this platform can provide.

If you have any queries or comments, please do not hesitate to reach out to Carina (carina.king@ki.se), Miriam (miriam.mosesson@ki.se)  or Kevin (k.baker@malariaconsortium.org).
