The School of Biological Sciences, Te Kura Mātauranga Koiora, is pleased to present our annual teaching and research showcase.

We will present research and teaching highlights to showcase the full spectrum of our activities.

This exciting one-day event will feature talks from the winners of our teaching and research prizes and from our first year PhD students, a lunchtime poster session, and conclude with a prize giving reception where we will award our annual teaching and research prizes as well as prizes for the best student talks and posters.

We hope you enjoy this opportunity to congregate to celebrate our teaching and research.
