The Virtual Neonatal Update - The Science of Newborn Care, November 2020

In the light of the current pandemic, this year’s Neonatal Update will be conducted virtually.

The Virtual Neonatal Update 2020 offers an innovative programme of 20 state-of-the-art lectures by world leading scientists and clinician researchers.
This year's programme includes:
  • "Managing heart failure in neonates" (Professor Willem Pieter de Boode, Radboud University, the Netherlands),
  • "Rethinking neonatal parental nutrition" (Professor Greet Van den Berghe, KU Leuven University, Belgium),
  • "How to draw causal inferences from observational and epidemiological studies" (Professor Deborah Lawlor, University of Bristol),
  • the 2020 David Harvey Lecture "What next for Cochrane Neonatal?" (Professor Roger Soll, University of Vermont).

There will also be a talk by best-selling science writer, Adam Rutherford. The full programme can be found on the Neonatal Update website.
For the price of £150, from 2 November, twenty pre-recorded lectures will available to registered delegates, you can view them as often you like, at times to suit you, and with friends and colleagues if you wish at no extra cost.

From this point you will able to submit questions to be addressed during the live interactive sessions that will run from 16 November to a pre-published schedule. At these, speakers will provide a 20 minute résumé of their lecture, answer pre-submitted questions and lead a live discussion for a further 20 minutes. Each live session will last an hour and will be held twice in order to accommodate delegates from different time zones.

As in previous years, there will be offered two Young Investigator Awards to enable outstanding researchers to present a 20-minute résumé of their investigative vision.
