Praise from the 2013 NCRI Conference

The conference was exceptionally well organised and provided a lot of time for networking with other researchers as well as a good platform to find out more  about the latest technologies available to assist in research.

Navigating the conference programme is made easy for bursary holders and the conference itself gives a wealth of information to take back into the work we are doing. The poster sessions in particular are an opportunity to meet some good contacts.

The opportunity to learn more than I already know, so that I am able to update and help others in my group
