INSIGHTS Public Lecture Prize 2018

The Graduate School is pleased to seek nominations for the INSIGHTS Public Lecture Prize. If you are a doctoral student (PhD, MD or DClinPsy) with a talent for presenting we encourage you to seek a nomination from your supervisor or other academic staff who have seen your presentations. Supervisors will be asked to provide a list of presentations you have given or have planned. Judges will be looking for confident presenters who are able to explain their research clearly to a broad audience and they will try to attend any of your forthcoming presentations if possible.

Six of the students nominated will be chosen to receive specialist training in delivery and content selection. There will then be a further selection process and three finalists will be selected to present their work at the INSIGHTS event, which will be on Thursday 17 May 2018.

Nominations must be from academic members of staff. The nomination form is at https://forms.ncl.ac.uk/view.php?id=818456.

If you have any questions then please do not hesitate to contact us at medpg-dev@ncl.ac.uk.

North East Postgraduate Conference


Once again this year's North East Postgraduate Conference (NEPG) was a tremendous success, providing research students from the region (and well beyond) a great opportunity to share their work and discuss a broad range of research topics. The conference is entirely student led and organised and, as a token the our gratitude for their fantastic efforts,  the Graduate School and Faculty awarded this years' organisers the prize of a celebratory dinner.

We would especially like to mention to the two lead organisers who took on an incredible amount of work to make the conference such a fantastic event - congratulations to Yasmin Ahmed and Abbie Kelly (both PhD candidates in ICaMB)

The NEPG is now a critical element of the cohort training provided for our Doctoral Training Partnership students from the BBSRC and MRC, so it is vital to the Faculty and University. We think it’s really important that research students are involved in deciding what the conference should be like, so here is your chance to be involved in NEPG 2018: there will be an initial meeting to find out more about being part of the organising team on Wednesday 13 December, from 13.00-14.00. Please register here.

Remember, many hands make light work so please make the most of this opportunity and get involved. The best way to make the NEPG the conference you most want to go to is to get involved in organising it!
