Parade of Stars 2016

The fourth Parade of Stars event was a showcase of exciting and innovative research, celebrating academic success across the IoPPN. 

This year Parade of Stars included five minute talks from researchers at all levels from student to professor, as well as the professional services that support our work. We also celebrated the achievements of six postdoctoral researchers who have received Independent Researcher Awards. 

This was an occasion for networking and to inspire collaboration. The Parade of Stars is a celebration of the excellence, inclusivity and cooperation that makes the IoPPN such a wonderful institution for working and studying.
