Seminar series

As part of the vibrant culture within our School, we run a regular programme of seminars for staff and students. The 2020/21 seminar series is currently being held virtually due to coronavirus (COVID-19).

Seminars cover a variety of topics and themes which are linked to the School’s four research divisions:

  • Molecular biosciences (MOLBIO)
  • Neuroscience (NEURO)
  • Organisms and environment (ONE)
  • Biomedicine (BMD)

Please contact biosi-research@cardiff.ac.uk for Zoom joining information.

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