The second EDIS (Equality, Diversity and Inclusion in Science and Health) symposium will take place at the Crick on 9th September. EDIS is a coalition of organisations in the science and health sector working together to improve equality, diversity and inclusion and the day will focus on the concept of inclusive research and experimental design.
Research to improve human health should aim to create equal and better health outcomes, from biomedical research through to clinical trials. This symposium will take the concepts of Equality, Diversity and Inclusion and look at how these are applicable to research and experimental design, aiming to investigate ideas around the sex of cells and animals used in research, the ethnicity and ancestry of participants in genome sequencing projects, the diversity of participants in clinical trials and inclusive public involvement in research.

This event is aimed at biomedical, medical, preclinical, clinical and health researchers, as well as funders and policy makers. There will be talks from researchers in the relevant fields as well as discussion and panel sessions on practicalities and implementation.
