They will be joining MBI’s PhD Programme in Mechanobiology, which focuses on training students in interdisciplinary research, supported by a highly-integrated team approach to making scientific discoveries and cutting-edge facilities.

To welcome the new graduate students and introduce them to the other graduate students in MBI, the Graduate Students Club of the MBI Young Scientist Group recently hosted a virtual ice-breaking session on Zoom. The students officially started their PhD journey at MBI with a mini-symposium where they were introduced to the programme structure and got to meet and learn about the specific research of each MBI Principal Investigator. They will be commencing their lab rotations soon, so if you see them around, please give them a warm reception!
