AIPS  mission is to:

Establish an 'identity', and give voice to, all scientists within the Institute
Foster more efficient and productive interactions within the Institute
Encourage productive interactions between our Institute
In recent year,  we organized a chalk talk series to help prepare scientists for grant/job interviews, gave our scientists the opportunity chair the Wednesday Lunchtime Seminar series to increase their confidence and experience in chairing seminar sessions, launched a Institute mentor scheme, and hosted a number of social events during the year. We also initiated interactions with postdoc committees at both the School of Clinical Medicine and the University level and currently have representation at each.
In 2017/2018 will be expanding on these activities to include careers talks, training sessions, and an external speaker seminar series along with plenty more social events.
