The annual Festival of Graduate Research took place at the Medical school with poster and lecture presentations. There was a good representation from Dentistry with Ilaria Chicca, (PhD 4th year) who presented her research on “Novel High-Throughput technique for screening NETs in inflammatory disorders”.  Gala_2016_06
