PhD & DNA Day 2023

We are pleased to announce a joint event for PhD Day and DNA Day to take place on Wednesday 26th April 2023.

DNA Day in 2023 commemorates both the 20th anniversary of the Human Genome Project’s completion (2003) and the 70th anniversary of the discovery of the DNA double helix (1953), both milestones in scientific history and important for all researchers. PhD Day is dedicated to our own next generation of researchers, their Advisors and hosting departments.

During the morning sessions, PhD students will present their work to date (open to the public via physical presence only). For the second segment of our event after lunch, we will hold a press conference focused on informing the media and general public of our activities and contribution to our patients and society, during which we will be honoured to host the Minister of Health, Dr. Popi Kanari.

PhD Day – DNA Day will culminate with a highly esteemed Keynote speaker, Prof. Kypros Nicolaides, Professor of Fetal Medicine at King's College, London University and Director at Harris Birthright Research Centre for Fetal Medicine, King’s College Hospital, London. Prof. Nicolaides lecture at 2.20pm will be on the subject of Fetal Medicine and will be accessible via Zoom.

The event will be held in the Amphitheatre and you can view the full schedule of the day in the Booklet. Poster presentations will take place in the CING Foyer.
