Our new Research Bursary scheme allows students to spend eight weeks at the end of their second year assisting staff in their research. This helps them learn more about how large research projects are carried out and to develop their skills. Work done this summer by one such Bursary student, Matthew Byott, has lead to him being an author in an article published this Tuesday in one of our leading journals: Current Biology. You can read an account of the research in the New Scientist and in the Daily Mail online. We hope to extend this scheme to first year students.
