EASTBIO Induction Day 2012

Wednesday 17th October saw the 35 new BBSRC-funded EASTBIO Doctoral Training Partnership students and their supervisors gather in Dundee for our first annual Induction Day.

The day was a great opportunity for everyone to meet each other and to hear introductory talks from the Academic Management Group, including Professor Clare Blackburn, Dr Den Barrault, Dr Bernadette Connolly and Professor Paul Crocker. The afternoon was spent in breakout discussion groups based around our research themes: Food Security, Industrial Biotechnology, Lifelong Health & Wellbeing and World Class Underpinning Bioscience. The day ended with a drinks reception and was kindly hosted and organised by the University of Dundee.
