CSM PhD students awarded funding to host PG symposium

StratiCSM STRATiGRAD PhD students Fran Jackson and Nancy Georgakopoulou are organising (together with UCC students) a postgraduate symposium for the CSM STRATiGRAD PhD students and students from the Alimentary Pharmabiotic centre (APC) at University College Cork (UCC).

The symposium will be focussing on gut microbiome research using molecular biology and multi-omics technologies . The event will be held at the end of September at Imperial College, which will include lectures from the section leaders, postgraduate current work posters and oral presentations, as well as a social networking aspect. Both centres are interested in the interaction of the gut microbiome and host health, this networking event is to integrate knowledge and training between our centres. By interacting at a postgraduate level, it will promote awareness in students from both parties and open up the opportunity for future, and hopefully, lasting collaborations.

Fran and Nancy have been awarded £1500 towards this event by the Imperial College Graduate School through their Cohort Building Activity Funding Scheme. More details of the event will be posted as soon as they are announced.
