Join us in another celebration of the Institute as we look back at the highlights from the month of April (2017). Listen as Laurie Baker, Taya Forde, Karen Hotopp and James Burgon discuss recent publications from, awards to and achievements by Institute researchers. These include PhD viva successes, an amazing award for an outstanding student publication, an award from the Zoological Society of London to one of our most distinguished researchers, and the establishment of new links with Scottish Natural Heritage. Listen to find out more.
(A quick note on this episode: We had a little mishap with the recording, so some of it had to be redone. This has lead to some abrupt changes in tone at certain points. The content is the same, so we hope you can forgive us and don’t find it too distracting.)
