Postgraduate research

Postgraduate students play an important role in our departmental culture and the Department of Microbiology and Immunology has a very active postgraduate research programme. At any given time we have approximately 35 PhD students and 10 MSc students working in the department. 

Postgraduate student activities

Many of our postgraduate students present their research at local, national and international conferences, and many are supported by funds from the Department.  There are also opportunities to present research within the department at research colloquia and seminars.
