The  Postgraduate Research Day has been held annually in the Welsh School of Pharmacy since the start of this century and provides a valuable experience for the PhD students during their study period in Cardiff to present their endeavours to their peers in a supportive environment.  It is currently organised by Dr Emma Kidd with assistance from Wendy Davies (Post-graduate administrator) and an organising committee from within the School.
