We are in the process of organizing a series of monthly events for the upcoming academic year, addressing a range of topics such as grant writing, publishing, and non-academic career paths. This is intended to complement existing events provided at university level, but to be more specific to the needs of Biosciences.

If there is an issue you would like advice or training on or if you have an idea for an event, please contact us – ideas are welcome!
