About us

We are a new blog run by Postgraduate research (PGR) students in the School of Health in Social Science at the University of Edinburgh. We are a truly diverse community, not only in terms of research interests and academic backgrounds but also of experiences, cultures, views and lifestyles–a situation that sometimes makes it harder to see what is the link between all of us… 


Research Bow is an initiative to make our PGR community link stronger, by sharing and learning from each other’s academic-related experiences, insights and tips!


If you have any ideas or questions, you would like to get involved, share an academic-related experience or if you simply come across something that you think other PGRs would be interested in, please get in touch: research.bow@ed.ac.uk!
