Cornea to Cortex

The Cornea to Cortex research seminar series has been running for over 16 years, and we have hosted esteemed UK-based and international researchers from a wide range of vision-related disciplines.

Academic staff from the School also showcase the world-class research being undertaken at Cardiff University.

The seminars usually take place on Wednesday between 13:00-14:00 each week, from October to April, and are held in the lecture theatre on the ground floor of the School. All are welcome to attend.
