At Leicester we’re going places. However, our busy agendas don’t always allow us to keep up with what other departments (or even our own) are doing or to take the time to go over there and discuss possible collaborations. This blog intends to showcase research at Leicester, bring researchers together and promote discussion. Furthermore, it will be a space for sharing information of interest to CVS staff and students about conferences and courses attended, articles read, outreach activities or funding opportunities. As this blog is intended to be as interactive as possible, readers are encouraged to comment on posts and, if you have a particular subject you would like to write about, please submit it to firstname.lastname@example.org.
