3rd/4th level

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 EPE 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 2019 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. Details will be announced shortly.

APC staff and students receive training and participate in STEM career initiatives e.g. Smart Futures and science communication competitions such as  UCC Science for All  and  Famelab .

APC partners with the British Council and Tyndall National Institute, IPIC, Infant and  MaREI  in organising the CORK HEAT of Famelab Ireland.  The closing date for ENTRY into the CORK HEAT  is Friday 15th February 2019.   The Cork Heat will take place on 27th February at Triskel Arts Centre.  Full details .
