Cohort training block 2: Annual Symposium and IBioIC Conference
The annual symposia provides an opportunity for students and supervisors to network with the other students in the cohort and representatives from industry. Students will also get the opportunity to discuss their research and undertake additional training.
Following the symposium, all our students attend the IBioIC Annual Conference held in Glasgow every January/ February. In addition to attending, our 2nd, 3rd and 4th year PhDs are also encouraged to compete for speaker slots and to enter the conference poster competition. This opportunity enables the students to make direct contact with industry from an early stage and to start thinking of career possibilities after their studies.
