Undergraduate Research Experience Placements
EASTBIO DTP understands the significant opportunity that its Undergraduate Research Experience Placements offers to undergraduate students who may wish to embark on a research career path. EASTBIO is committed to delivering the scheme. However, we will not be able to offer placements this year due to continued restrictions operating in many labs. The scheme will be re-launched in the summer of 2022, with additional awards to take into account those we have been unable to host in 2020 or 2021, and will include a programme of Widening Participation activities open to eligible applicants. We will advertise further details via our website in early 2022.

The Induction Day events for the new intake of students starting in autumn 2021 will be held online across two half days, the 11th and the 12th of October. Induction will be followed by an online Training Day - with a Masterclass on Statistics and Experimental Design, delivered by Dr Graham Horgan - on the 13th of October. Both events are mandatory for new starts. Further updates here.
EASTBIO Annual Symposia
The eleventh EASTBIO Annual Symposium on Bioscience Research is scheduled to be held in Edinburgh (John McIntyre Conference Centre, 9-10 June 2022) - we hope to be able to deliver this in person and online. EASTBIO student reps in their second and first year will orchestrate the symposium activities, with the guidance of Dr Sam Miller (EASTBIO Co-Director, University of Aberdeen). Details to be shared here in the autumn of 2021.
