Grant and journal writing workshops

Senior IHBI researchers share advice based on their experiences at our grant and journal writing workshops.

IHBI Career Catalyst workshops

Senior IHBI researchers meet and network with students to provide mentorship and discuss possible areas for career development in industry or the university environment

Research seminars and events

We hold fortnightly research seminars featuring IHBI researchers and visiting researchers. We encourage students to attend, participate in, and present at these sessions. These events not only give you an idea about what research is being done at IHBI but areas for potential collaboration.


You'll have access to our specialist research laboratories and equipment.
