The value of Doctoral Research

Each year we challenge our researchers to define and capture their research through a single image. These photographs and illustrations are a stunning and thought-provoking way to engage the public in our research, helping to explain and communicate complex issues and increase our understanding of the important scientific, humanitarian or cultural research our postgraduate researchers are conducting.
