2. ESPID Research Masterclass
The ESPID Research Masterclass (ERMC) is a closed, seminar type of forum for active paediatric infectious diseases (PID) research groups in Europe. The research performed can involve ‘bench-type’ basic and translational research, as well as ‘bed-side’ clinical studies (e.g. observational, case-control, randomized controlled, interventional) and epidemiological studies in any area of paediatric infectious diseases.
The format of ERMC is well suited for presenting work-in-progress as well as studies that have completed. You will gain feedback and input from other research groups, as well as senior research leaders in paediatric infectious diseases, on how to approach the research question, on study design and on presentation and interpretation of results.
