Seminar series

As part of an initiative to enhance our onsite research culture after the changes due to the pandemic, a new school-wide single seminar series will run from October 2022.

The seminars will take place on Tuesdays at 13:10 followed by tea and coffee in C/1.21.

Speakers have been chosen on their ability to present to a broad set of biological science students and researchers. To engage audiences and appeal to all, a wider, top level background to the research area will be introduced before published and current research is presented. Dates are displayed per division below.

Preparatory material, where provided, is aimed at Integrated Masters students. Other users may not have access to all links.
