PhD Social Life

Building the future, together

We encourage a friendly, collaborative, and warm environment at TIGEM, this extends across all our researchers, students, administrative and supportive staff. As well as interacting daily in the lab, at Data Clubs, and in classes, every year and a half, all the students are invited to the TIGEM retreat.

Taking our community out of the lab and into a more informal setting encourages students and the research faculty to socialise and spend time together. This in turn, encourages and renews research passion and productive scientific collaboration. During the retreat, students participate in scientific discussions and poster sessions.

Members of TIGEM learn from each other and work together; our retreats help to strengthen this key attribute of TIGEM.
