The development of APC staff and students is of crucial importance to meet the APC goal of producing the scientific leaders of tomorrow. This is achieved through the professional laboratory training of postgraduate students and postdoctoral fellows. Our Ed&O programme has also taken a lead role in developing new educational programmes to strengthen the skills of our research community in areas such as entrepreneurship, presentation skills, innovation and business development.
APC’s Principal Investigators also make significant contributions to both graduate and undergraduate education in UCC, CIT and Teagasc, by incorporating cutting edge research discoveries into their lectures and by providing a unique multidisciplinary perspective on science and research to undergraduate students of science and medicine.
APC Summer Student Bursaries 2018 will be available for 2 months for 3rd science or medicine undergraduate/graduate entry students based in Irish Universities who would like to gain valuable lab experience.
