Appeal to support the research of Dr Justin Gerlach, College Lecturer in Biological Sciences

Our Fellows and College Lecturers are doing very interesting work and as a way of supporting their research interests as well as making what they are doing more widely known, we wish actively to support their research where no other funding is available. 

This summer the College offered Petreans the opportunity to contribute to a fund of £5,000 towards Dr Justin Gerlach's research trip to the South Pacific to investigate the current status of the Partula snail in remote mountainous areas of Polynesian islands.   Justin has now successfully completed his trip and a report on his findings can be found here.
