Postdocs play a crucial role in the lab, balancing research, mentorship and being the glue that holds the lab together. The 18th-22nd September is National Postdoc Appreciation week (#NPAW2023), and the perfect time to give recognition for the significant contributions that postdocs make to research.

Proteintech has teamed up with Pint of Science to organise free events at universities across the UK to celebrate the achievements of postdoctoral researchers. Please note, these events are for staff and students at the institutions and not for the public.
