2016 Immunology PhD and Postdoc Day

The annual PhD and Postdoc day was held on the 31/05/2016, it was a great event, with 80 people registering. The idea behind this event was to give the PhD students and Postdoc’s an internal event where they can showcase their work in a non-competitive environment, giving them the chance to prepare for external conferences. This gave the researchers a chance to hone their presentation skills whilst having an opportunity to network with fellow scientists. With input from our Immunology network PhD and post-doc committee, a programme was put together that saw short talks form many of our Cambridge researchers. There were two inspiring talks from PI’s (Early and established), these keynote speakers, were Dr Maike de la Roche and Prof John Todd FRS. There was also a keynote talk from Dr Iain Thomas, from Cambridge Enterprise.
