EASTBIO Induction and Training Day (Dundee, 8-9 October 2019)

Thanks to all our new PhD students and their supervisors for making our Induction (Dundee, 8th of October) such a memorable day - an unbroken tradition, in this respect. Warmest thanks go to our student reps - Alysha, Ana, Amy and Liat - for their generosity and helpfulness. Initial connections made in Dundee are bound to deepen!



EASTBIO Annual Symposia

The ninth EASTBIO Annual Symposium, on the Societal Impact of Bioscience Research, will be held in the University of St Andrews (11-12 June 2020). Our reps, representing second- and first-year students, will help devise a programme of talks and activities around the focus on societal impact of research.
