b'Strategic Plan 2020 25To grow and evolve: In keeping with the growingimportance and interest in Neuroscience, TCIN willcontinue to develop in breadth and depth, buildingits base of associated PIs with interest inNeuroscience and diversifying its source of funding.Consistent with this, over the last two years, TCIN hassuccessfully recruited terrific new sta withsignificant research ambitions. Several existing TrinityPIs have moved their laboratory operations fromother locations to the Lloyd building.
