The All Ireland Institute of Biomedical Sciences Postgraduate Conference

This conference is open to Biomedical Science Postgraduate students from the colleges on the island of Ireland, students are invited to submit abstracts if they wish to give a short oral presentation or to present a poster (prizes for the best oral and poster presentations!).

This will be an excellent opportunity to gain presenting experience in a relatively informal setting, and to meet other researchers and establish relationships for future collaborative research or possible employment opportunities. Staff members and students not wishing to present are of course invited to register and attend as well.

The conference includes a CV building workshop with a talk from Career Development Consultant Norman Haigan, there is also a CV feedback session, and the opportunity to have a professional head-shot taken which would be ideal for use on social media. Friday 15th June, 14:00-16:00, Room E206/7 (Bannview Suite). This workshop is open to PhD Researchers from all faculties at Ulster University. Places are limited to 30 attendees, register by emailing Zoe at <>
