New BSCB PhD rep
Hello! My name
is Kimberley and I am delighted to be your new PhD student representative. As a
regular reader of the student column, I know what a great job Jay Stone did
over the last few years and I hope to be able to continue in a similar fashion.
I thought that a
good point to start would be to tell you a little bit about myself. I have just
started my 3rd year of a 4-year rotational PhD program at the MRC
Laboratory for Molecular Cell Biology, in London where I am part of the Nurrish group, researching neurotransmission in C. elegans. Before starting my PhD I studied
Biochemistry at the University of Oxford where my final year project was also
on C. elegans.
My role as
student rep is to make sure that the student community is represented within
the BSCB. If you ever have any issues that you wish me to address, or ideas for
how the BSCB can better serve your needs, please do not hesitate to get in
touch and I will raise them at the next committee meeting. Don't forget that there is also a
Facebook page that can be used to stay informed of BSCB events and competitions
(such as the science writing prize) and hopefully in the near future we will
also have a Twitter account.
I look forward
to meeting many of you at the BSCB Spring meeting inWarwick.
