Meet our Students

Our MRC DTP students come from a range of backgrounds. We work closely with our cohorts to drive the growth of the DTP, and value the importance of training and socialising within a cohort to enhance the students experience. We champion a student-led approach ensuring that student feedback informs the evaluation and development of activities.

Our Student Reps

Alex McCraw

Emily Stanyer

Ryan Stanyard

Student representatives are a key contact for the programme. They are members of the MRC DTP Executive Committee, sharing feedback from the cohort, representing their peers and contributing substantially to future initiatives and planning.

To get in touch with our Student Reps, please email mrc-dtp-reps@kcl.ac.uk.

“As a student rep, you get a real chance to influence the decisions that will shape the whole MRC DTP. It feels great to know that your feedback is valued, and that your input can help the current and future PhD students on the programme. I also think it was very interesting to see how the MRC DTP is run “from the inside”. I definitely don’t regret getting involved!” – Martyna Panasiuk, Theme 2, 2017-18 cohort.

“Being a student rep has been a great way to be actively involved in decisions relating to our PhD programme and to gain experience of executive board meetings. I felt that my input as a student rep was really valued by the executive and management team. Also, the time commitment of one 2 hour meeting every other month was definitely manageable!” – Alice Vickers, Theme 1, 2016-17 cohort.

Our Social Committee

Angus Nichols

Emily Stanyer

Helen Powell

Lucy Menage

Sadie Hallett

The Social Committee lead on social activities and events for the MRC DTP. It works closely with the MRC DTP Management Team; discussing event ideas, sourcing venues, managing budgets and much more.

To get in touch with our Social Committee, please email mrc-dtp-social@kcl.ac.uk

“Joining the social committee gave us the opportunity to put together several socials where the entire cohort had a chance to get together in a much less formal setting away from the stresses of symposiums, conferences and the like. I had such a blast getting together with the team to ensure that the events were enjoyable with loads of food and drink as well as games and quizzes. It also gave me experience working in a team to set up events complete with planning and budgeting which has been a great help for when I’ve organised more formal academic events. This experience has also helped me gain positions on more senior committees within the university.” – Adrian Signell, Theme 1, 2018-2019 cohort.

 

“I’ve really enjoyed being on the social committee, it’s a great way to have some input into events that bring the cohort together and do something a bit different to planning academic based events. Its one of the least stressful committees you can be on while still getting a great experience out of it – ranging from planning pub quizzes, to scouting out venues and planning menus, to designing penguin-themed games for the Christmas social. I’ve had a great time, and would really recommend it!” – Helena Winstone, Theme 1, 2018-2019 cohort.
