Autumn 2016

GEL lab celebrates it’s 5th anniversary!
The GEL lab was established in October 2011, and this autumn is celebrating its 5th anniversary.  It’s been a busy and fruiful half decade: 8 PhD students, 6 MSc students and 2 postdoctoral students have joined the lab in that time.  We have published over 45 peer-reviewed journal articles, coedited a book, and presented our work at national and international conferences and to the press and media. We look forward to another exciting and successful 5 years ahead!
