CIMR Student Newsletter

16th November

What'd you call this then...

So welcome to the new. Rather than flooding you with countable emails concerning all the fun activities to get involved in with other CIMR students, you will now receive a condensation of news into a so called 'CIMR Student Newsletter' that will have arrived in your electronic mail boxes by Monday morning each week. Hopefully this will allow you to have a better idea of what you can get involved in at CIMR. May you find these communications both useful and energising.

Blind Wine

The Postdoc committee has organised a blind wine tasting event that is being held on the 20th November at 6pm in CIMR. I guess they blindfold you or something - not sure, never been! Whatever happens, I'm sure it'll be fun, and if not, I'm sure it will be a fun story. To get involved, contact Dr Thomas Masters -
