PhD research symposium 2017

Our annual PhD Research Symposium, organised by the ECPgR Committee, was held on 11 May 2017 and showcased the outstanding and diverse research currently being undertaken by our PG research students.

The remarkable range of presentations included ambitious work on spinal cord repair, research into Parkinson's Disease, the preservation and conservation of rare artwork plus investigations into poor oral health and elite athletes.

The one-day event also provided an excellent opportunity to network with fellow student and staff researchers from across UCL.
