IfLS sponsored PhD student poster session - A networking opportunity in Life Sciences

Published: 18 October 2013

The IfLS today hosted a poster session for all the PhD students with research projects sponsored by the IfLS.

The 2012-13 cohort presented their research with the support and attendance of Director of the IfLS, Professor Peter Smith and Deputy Directors, Professor Tim Elliott and Professor Hywel Morgan.

The IfLS is committed to expanding the opportunities it can offer to postgraduate programmes, through interdisciplinary projects where students can be guided by supervisors from different faculties.  The IfLS has an annual allocation of funds to support PhD research students at the University of Southampton. These studentships are offered competitively across campus and are open to IfLS Members whose proposed project centres on interdisciplinary research. To be eligible to apply for IfLS funds, students must be members of the IfLS.
