Seminar series

As part of the vibrant culture within our School, we run a regular programme of seminars for staff and students.

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)
