Meet the Early Stage Researchers

STARSTEM is a vibrant project with collaborators who are at different stages of their research careers – from PhD students to senior professors. Some of our early stage researchers have set up social media accounts to share their personal story. They share their day to day experiences of life as a scientist and researcher.
