A fantastic few weeks of research is now completed, culminating in the Wrap Up Symposium on Friday, July 27th, 2018. This year not only had we our own students from RCSI but we also welcomed undergraduate students from Hoshi University, Tokyo, Japan; Soochow University, Suzhou, China; the RCSI StAR Summer Internship Programme; FutureNeuro and the Faculty of Dentistry. There was great stuff being done on a number of fronts, not only in the labs but also out on our clinical sites as well as an increase in the number of students involved in some fab systematic reviews. It was incredible to see the breadth of research done by our undergraduate students in such a short period of time. It is a credit to them, their research supervisors and teams. We eagerly look forward to next year’s programme.
Some insights from student’s perspective:
“It was educational in a different way; I expected to learn more about the disease I am working with get an outcome but instead, I feel like I am better equipped to analyse papers and data and methods that are very useful in the future as a clinician.”
“Amazing! Big thanks to Gill and Sarah O’Neill”
“It was a knowledgeable and valuable learning experience that was never dull in any way.”
