We have a page marked out for ‘making connections’. We would like to use this page to post bios of our members with information about where they study and the kind of research they are carrying out. If you would like to have your bio included please email it to us at PGRNScot@gmail.com along with a photo if you’d like that included as well. https://pgrnscotland.wordpress.com/blog/
