EASTBIO Research Experience Placement Scheme Induction - Dundee, 30-31 May 2022
First-year student Sau Yee Tsoi (CMVM - Centre for Discovery Brain Sciences), one of the panel members "The EASTBIO experience 1: Conversation with first-year EASTBIO students" (30 May)
We had the pleasure of welcoming ten undergraduate students who were funded by EASTBIO DTP to do a REP project in the summer of 2022 at one of the EASTBIO partner institutions. Across two days, we met with the the REP award recipients and fostered lively interactions with our committed current and former students, supervisors and representatives from the Management team; we learnt so much and were heartened by direct currents of knowledge and reflection moving from prospective to current students to early career researchers, and echoed by supportive academics and guests at various career paths. Big thanks go to our brilliant student reps!
EASTBIO Annual Symposia
Huge thanks to our wonderful team of students from their first and second-years (see photo below), who have tirelessly planned, shaped and delivered the tenth EASTBIO Annual Symposium on Bioscience Research that took place in Edinburgh (John McIntyre Conference Centre) on the 9-10 June 2022. Thanks to our Support Officer Sio Carroll and the academic lead Dr Sam Miller (University of Aberdeen), as well as our brilliant students and supervisors, and inspiring guest speakers who joined us for the two-day event, both in person and remotely. What a joy it was - after over two years of online meetings - to see everyone in the flesh under the Edinburgh skies!
