Young Scientists

Regular monthly meetings have been established in the Centre for all PhD students and postdocs. Wellcome Trust funded young scientists are encouraged to attend and the meeting is open to others in the research group. These meetings are organised and led by the young scientists themselves. Responsibility for presenting research and leading the discussion rotates around the four research themes within the Centre and the venue switches between the different laboratory sites. To encourage the quieter and more junior members of the team to take an active part in the meetings, no PIs attend and refreshments are provided. These  meetings provide an opportunity for young scientists to get together, discuss their research and build links and collaborations between themselves and other young researchers from the Centre.
