4th Annual Trainee Research Day 2016

Thank you to all who participated to the Annual Trainee Day on June 3, 2016, it was a great success! It was held at the RI Auditorium at the Glen Site. 

The goal of the Research day was to showcase the vital contributions of the students and post-doctoral fellows with both poster and oral presentations. 

The focus was on Tuberculosis and other mycobacterial research and was open to all members of the Centre.
It is an opportunity to meet, mingle, share great research and enjoy some refreshments.
