“Student night was a huge success for Burnet,” Dr Gugasyan said.

“We had over 150 students attend, and it gave them a chance to engage with our students and laboratory heads and see what areas of research interest them.

“Our Life Sciences, Public and International Health Disciplines were really well represented, and I’d like to thank all the staff and students for their time, passion and enthusiasm.”
