Event description

Description

HCRI’s PhD Symposium is a full-day event of panels with presentations from our PhD students. This will be a lovely opportunity to acknowledge students’ passion about their research and the hard work of staff that underpins it.

This is an (almost) annual event which takes place in May. This usually signifies the end of the academic year. However this year the PhD Symposium signifies not the end of the academic year, but the beginning of our events programme in celebration of HCRI’s 10-year anniversary.
