The DTC for Communication Disorders

The new doctoral training centre (DTC) for Communication Disorders is up and running at the University of Strathclyde!

We are a group of Masters and PhD Students all specializing in the area of speech and language research. Last month we had our first departmental event on a farm in sunny Renfrewshire with the students, supervisors and fellow researchers across the globe.

Students presented updates on their current projects which opened up discussions across the board. Demonstrations of current instruments for research took place e.g. ultrasound tongue imaging that is being used in Louise McKeever’s PhD project and part of Dr. Joanne Cleland’s ultraphonix project. Dr. Alan Wrench demonstrated Advanced Articulate Assistant software which allows real-time ultrasound tongue imaging.

Excellent day and we look forward to more events with this new and exciting working partnership!
