Professor Li Su, a Research Fellow at Clare Hall, has been invited to speak during Alzheimer’s Research UK (ARUK)’s annual conference in Brighton this month.
Professor Su will present at the ‘Life of a Fellow’ event, sharing his experience of setting up a research group after being awarded the prestigious ARUK Senior Fellowship, and being appointed Professor of Neuroimaging at the Flagship Neuroscience Institute, University of Sheffield.
During his talk, Professor Su will cover how he dealt with extra commitments such as teaching and operational aspects of his role (HR and finances) whilst still running research projects, including his experience in Cambridge and how it helped him to settled into his new role at the University of Sheffield. He will also answer questions from attendees on different aspects of his role and provide tips on how to approach independence in academia.
Professor Su is actively promoting equality diversity and inclusion (EDI) in Department of Psychiatry and via his role at the Race Equality Network at the University of Cambridge. He is also a committee member of early career working groups in Alzheimer’s Research UK and Alzheimer’s Society, helping to shape the early career research strategy in these major funders.
