The term is drawing to a close and this week my third year tutorial class had a scientific poster session. These activities give the students a little taste of what a conference is like.
My groups were given freedom to pick a topic area related to cell to matrix adhesion in some way.
Alex, Ugne and Wenyou chose you focus on genome editing to repair the skin fragility disorder junctional epidermolysis bullosa.
Those of you with sharp eyesight will have noticed the three toons top left. All their idea!
My other group, Tom and Zhou chose to focus on mechanosignal transduction In bone formation. No cartoons here but still a cool poster!
These sessions are really good fun and a great experience for the students. The students really get to know their topic and by the time they are talking with faculty and students they genuinely care about the topic.
Obviously. I like it too!
