The BRS committee was excited to host the first in-person Research Day since 2019 on the 27th of May 2022. The support within the School of Biotechnology and the NICB was fantastic with 20 talks and 22 posters presented on the day. Paul Cahill, Head of School of Biotechnology, gave the opening remarks and emphasized how great it was to finally be able to gather the school for an in-person event.
