Gerhard Keller from Erlangen http://www.min.math.fau.de/staff/keller-gerhard/prof-dr-gerhard-keller/ visited for a few days at the end of September 2014 to give a seminar to the group. His visit was supported by an LMS visitor grant – thanks to the LMS!
10 members of the Systems Biomedicine Group ventured out into Dartmoor, to the Two Bridges Hotel, for their first research retreat. During the first morning members took turn to receive updates from each other’s research teams. Then after lunch, PDRAs broke out, with leading Communications and Training expert John Oley, to focus on interview sills training, whilst PIs brain stormed ideas for new research grants and publications. An enjoyable dinner gave members the opportunity to get to know each other informally, before regrouping on Day 2. PDRAs focussed on communicating within multidisciplinary teams, whilst PIs built up outlines of grants, building on the discussions of day 1. After lunch, a short walk into Dartmoor followed by discussions on organising events associated with a recently awarded GW4 Building Communities award to Marc Goodfellow brought proceedings to a close.
