The launch of the Graduate School was celebrated by showcasing innovative research from doctoral candidates and recently completed projects at University's Old Cinema in Regent Street, London.

Howard Boland (C-LAB), showed works developed through his transdisciplinary art-science research titled: Art from Synthetic Biology. The research involves a daily laboratory practice and investigates artistic potentials in synthetic biology and bacteria. For instance, capturing stress in living organisms as light or producing images by having bacteria degrade dye.
Videos included Stress-o-stat, Transient Images, Banana Bacteria, Bacteria Compass and Sludge Bacteria.
The event, organised by the University Graduate School, invited 23 researchers to present works to stakeholders and the research community.
A nice surprise was catching up with my supervisor who was back after a year away. Apart from seeing the variety of research exhibited, discussions with colleagues from the School of Media, Art and Design ended a late, bubbly and stimulating night.
