GRASP has a new logo!

GRASP logo vert

Many thanks to the efforts of all designers who have submitted their designs.

Congratulations to Ondrej Hauser for his winning design. For more information about Ondrej's graphic designs, please visit

The logo has been created with an emphasis on the central role played by GRASP in the structure of other university bodies. The connection of Postgraduate students and postdoctoral researchers of GSLS, School of Biological Sciences, School of Clinical Medicine and the GSLS Strategic Comittee is depicted by three inward pointing arrows with GRASP at its centre. The interaction of these and its impact on communication between these essential parts of GRASP is then exhibited as a set of outward pointing arrows. This creates a complex shape resonating with the main purpose and central position of a GRASP.
