Parade of Stars 2017

pos-2017-525x300

Parade of Stars is our showcase of exciting and innovative research, celebrating academic success across the Institute of Psychiatry, Psychology & Neuroscience (IoPPN).

In 2017 we revitalised the format to include five minute talks from researchers at all levels from student to professor, the professional services that support our work, and a selection of 3 Minute Thesis (3MT) finalists from the IoPPN. Thanks to additional funding from the NIHR Maudsley Biomedical Research Centre (BRC), we were able to celebrate the achievements of eight rather than four postdoctoral researchers who have received Independent Researcher Awards.

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.
