Highland focus for Graduate School workshop

Highland focus for Graduate School workshop

Postgraduate scientists from Aberdeen University’s College of Life Sciences and Medicine gathered in Cromarty last week to discuss research in the medical and environmental sciences.

Twenty four students representing eleven nationalities met at the University's Lighthouse Field Station, where they explored a wide range of topics including medical physics, studies of the brain, and the environmental impacts of climate change.

Building on studies that were carried out from Scottish sea beds to the uplands of Brazil, the workshop aimed to enhance research and communication skills, and explore linkages across the broad range of subjects studied within the College of Life Sciences and Medicine.

"Different languages, different cultures, different subjects, but with the same aims. All brought together in a beautiful place" explained Iranian biomedical student, Sayed Hossain Rasta.

Originally developed over ten years ago for Aberdeen-based Zoology students, this is now the third year that these workshops have been expanded to provide core-training for the Graduate School of the College of Life Sciences and Medicine.

"Cromarty provides an ideal venue for us to combine postgraduate training with an opportunity for international and Scottish students to sample Highland walks, culture and food" said Professor Paul Thompson, one of the workshop organizers.

Two workshops are now held annually in Cromarty, using training facilities at the University's Lighthouse Field Station, accommodation at the Cromarty Training Centre and an evening at local restaurant "Sutor Creek".
