Postgraduate Symposium 2018 – Guest speaker Professor Jon Pines FRS
Thank you to everyone in the school who contributed to this year’s successful postgraduate symposium on 10 & 11 July 2018, including speakers, poster presenters, chairs, and prize judges.
The Symposium Lecture was given this year by Professor Jon Pines, FRS, Head of Division, Cancer Cell Biology, Institute of Cancer Research, London.

With 2 days of interesting science talks by our year 3 PhD students, the year 2 students presented posters and faced questions on their research by judges, academics and students. Finally, prior to the start of the lecture, as the second day drew to a close, our visiting speaker presented 3 of the winners with their cash prizes, while Dr Robert Young from Lonza presented the Lonza Biologics Award.
