OUCAGS 2009-2019 – celebrating our 10th anniversary!

OUCAGS’ 10th anniversary was celebrated recently with a special edition of the OUCAGS Forum and an inspirational guest lecture by Harvard Professor of Medicine, Dr Benjamin Ebert, who talked about the ‘Origins of Discovery’.

The celebration took place on 27th September at Wolfson College, Oxford, and was an opportunity to welcome back our alumni, as well as academics and others who have supported OUCAGS over the years. Our Forum, which is a space for sharing research findings, ideas, and know-how, was enriched by having presentations by both current trainees and alumni.

The presentations and Dr Ebert’s lecture were followed by a dinner, which was a unique opportunity for current trainees, alumni and other guests to meet and network.
