Kathryn awarded membership to the Royal Society of Edinburgh's Young Academy of Scotland

Kathryn Elmer is very pleased to have been awarded a membership to the Royal Society of Edinburgh's Young Academy of Scotland. YAS "fosters interdisciplinary activities among emerging leaders from the disciplines of science and humanities, the professions, the arts, business and civil society". I am very much looking forward to all the new ideas and colleagues brought together by working with YAS.

Congratulations to Kevin on his recent success

Kevin Schneider successfully gained a full scholarship from the Fisheries Society of the British Isles to fund his PhD research on comparative ecological genomics of salmonid fishes. Kevin will start his PhD this autumn, working with Kathryn Elmer and Colin Adams. Congratulations to Kevin on winning such a competitive scholarship.
