Research Day


Each year we run our Research Day event, providing the opportunity for top quality collaborative research to be presented to staff, students and visitors.

During this fantastic one day event, a selection of PhD students, Research Associates and Post-Doctoral Researchers will present summaries of their key findings. Providing an exciting opportunity for research activities to be shared across all research groups and to inform the wider research community of what our students are producing.
