Delegation from Swansea University, UK, visits the National Institute of Biology as part of the HEU CutCancer project

From 14 to 16 November, the National Institute of Biology (NIB) hosted a delegation from Swansea University (the UK 5th university for collaborative research income per academic) as part of the HEU Twinning CutCancer project. The delegation consisted of Julie Williams, Assistant Director for Research Support and Head of Research Development, Bethan Jones, International Research Development Consultant, and Michael Burgum, a researcher.

The purpose of the visit was to forge closer links between the two institutions and to exchange information and experience in the life sciences. During the visit, the guests met with representatives from all four NIB departments: Department of Genetic Toxicology and Cancer Biology, Department of Biotechnology and Systems Biology, Department of Organisms and Ecosystems Research, Marine Biology Station Piran. Representatives from both institutions shared a range of relevant research-related information through presentations and in-depth discussions. The whole event was considered a great success, with participants from both institutions identifying opportunities for future collaboration.
