Apollo London is part of an international network of motivated and likeminded early career researchers and students aiming to develop the next generation of successful translational researchers.

If you want your research or clinical work make a difference for patients and society, then this exciting group is for you, whether you are a medical student, post graduate student or early career researcher, in either a clinical or non clinical field.
