A new support network for a thriving community of fellows.
A launch event last night celebrated a new initiative to bring together the fellows of the Faculty of Natural Sciences.
The Faculty of Natural Sciences has some 120 Fellows on 30 different Fellowship types. The Fellows are the bedrock of the research activities in the Faculty and when brought together form a thriving community. The Faculty of Natural Sciences Fellows’ Forum aims to provide activities for Fellows, as a means of increasing their visibility and integration within the Faculty, and also to allow scientific and social networking and potentially mentoring amongst Fellows. This initiative recognises the important contribution that Fellows make within the Faculty and provides a mechanism for Fellows to engage with the Faculty and with their peers, stimulating collaboration and exchange of ideas.
James Murray, a David Phillips Research Fellow in the Division of Molecular Biosciences, attended the event and said "It was very interesting to meet the other fellows, and I am probably going to have scientific contact with several of them as a result of this single meeting. I look forward with pleasure to the next event."
The Fellows’ Forum Working Group, consisting of Katerina Artavanis-Tsakonas, Martin Rasmussen, Jonathan Eastwood, Stuart Mangles, Marina Kuimova and Ed Tate, plan to arrange an exciting programme of events suitable for Fellows at different career stages.
