- ABOUT USThe Life Sciences Initiative is a cross-faculty multidisciplinary initiative working with partners from the local community, higher education, NHS and industry to make a significant contribution to the health of people at regional, national and international levels. We aim to create a unique Life Sciences cluster in East London.
Use this space to share information and resources, ask questions and be part of the LSI network.
- LEARNING AND DEVELOPMENTThe LSI runs dedicated development activities, coordinated by Dr Ele Groves, who is available for 1:1 advice.
Ele works with the Researcher Development team who run the suite of workshops available for PGRs and ECRs.
