Our 2017/18 cohort of 4ward North Academy Fellows attended a Fellows' event on 15 December 2017 in Leeds.  They had the opportunity to meet with 20 of our 4ward North supervisors from across the four Universities with the aim of fostering new collaborative research links to support their Clinical PhD application. 

Many thanks to all who attended and made it an enjoyable and productive day.  We were especially pleased to welcome Professor Simon Boulton, Senior Group Leader at the Francis Crick Institute, who gave the keynote talk 'DNA repair: from obscurity to exploitation in cancer therapy'.
