Poster winners: Gabriele, Emily and James

Our postgraduates and Keynote PDRA speakers made the Durham postgraduate (PG) symposium on 18th June a success - a really enjoyable event, well attended and lively. All the speakers showed an extraordinarily high degree of professionalism.

Many research projects are now linked to genuine societal issues reflecting significant changes over the past 10 years or so. Thanks to Prof Jon Steed for organising this fantastic event and to the talk and poster judges. Many congratulations to the winners:
