This week (20th-24th September) is Postdoc Appreciation Week – a time to celebrate the fantastic contribution postdoctoral scientists make towards research and academic life in general. At the Sanger Institute there are 120 postdoctoral researchers – colloquially known as ‘postdocs’. These PhD-qualified individuals undertake research across the Institute. They are at the heart of delivering our mission and are the driving force behind much of our science.
We spoke to staff at the Institute who wanted to share their appreciation for postdocs.
