Six BBSRC Research Experience Placements 2016 were awarded across the EASTBIO DTP to:
Alex Websdale, sponsored by Professor Carol Munro (School of Medicine, Medical Sciences and Nutrition, University of Aberdeen), to do a BfH project "Investigating Candida albicans echinocandin drug susceptibility with gain of function mutants”
At the recent EASTBIO DTP 2016 PIPS QA Event in Dundee (12 February), our second-year students were treated to a number of presentations by students who have completed their PIPS and gave some useful insights into actual experiences of placements.
Fraser Murphy (Dundee-based third-year student) shared his slides with us; click on the image below to get a sense of his talk.
EASTBIO third-year student Christopher Johnston, based at the University of Aberdeen, wrote a report for the Scottish Government during his PIPS internship which got published and hit the national news.
One of the first studies to use the full data set of survey results between 1990 and 2013, shows lowest levels of smoking amongst 13 and 15-year old pupils in Scotland.
We are currently revising our Training Programme and wish to draw the attention of our students and supervisors - existing and new ones - to the changes in requirements and timelines for each of the four EASTBIO student cohorts.
Please go to our Programme page to see a variety of guides for students and supervisors or click on the child pages to see year-by-year views of our Training.
The EASTBIO website is currently being moved to a different server. As a result, remote access to it for registered users (EASTBIO students and supervisors) may be blocked. Students and supervisors not based at the University of Edinburgh may not be able to access some of its pages during this week.
We hope that the reconfiguration will be complete by the end of this week (21-28 September). Apologies for the inconvenience.
For any query, please email EASTBIO.
Our Induction Day for students who start their PhD in 2015 and hosted by the University of Dundee (28 September 2015) will be followed this year by a Foundation Masterclass on Statistics and Experimental Design (29 September), delivered by Dr Margo Chase-Topping (Centre for Immunity, Infection and Evolution, University of Edinburgh).
