Images of Research
On Thursday 12 December 2013, the University Graduate College hosted its first ‘Images of Research’ Event. This event marked the relocation of the University Graduate College to the new Hadyn Ellis Building building.
Attendees had the chance to explore the new building and view an exhibition of 53 stunning images of research submitted by PhD students from across the University. They enjoyed drinks and canapés whilst viewing and voting for their favourite image.
The winning image for the ‘People’s Choice’ award was ‘Dancing Molecules’ by Iuni M L Trist from the School of Pharmacy and Pharmaceutical Sciences. A panel of judges also awarded a prize which went to Jennifer Stockdale from the School of Biosciences for her image ‘Hungry for More: Feed Me!’ Both winners received a £200 cash prize. These winning images plus a further eight ‘highly commended’ images will be on display in the Haydn Ellis Building exhibition area until the end of January 2014.
The University Graduate College hopes to host further Images of Research events in future. Look out for details as they are announced on our website, Twitter and Facebook, and via our email bulletins.
