Biomedical Sciences 'Research in Progress' seminar series 2012/13

Please note that all Postgraduate Research Students within Biomedical Sciences are expected to attend each week.  An attendance list will be circulated at these sessions and those PGR students who have a justifiable reason for failing to attend, supported by their supervisor should contact Dr Andrew Devitt before each seminar.


Finally, all presenters are expected to Chair the following week's seminar. Please can Chairs therefore email confirmation of their attendance to Dr Devitt by following the above link.
