School Seminar Programme 2016

The aim of this series of monthly talks is to showcase each of our five research groups in turn and present a more general life/health sciences topic with a keynote speaker once or twice a year. In this way, we hope to appeal to a different specialist audience of academics, early career researchers and PhD students each month, while retaining a general audience at least once a year. The School has a diverse range of disciplines so this is not an easy task but as always, each talk is open to everyone. 

Sessions will start at 4pm on a Wednesday afternoon and normally run for an hour with Q&As, followed by a chance to chat over refreshments afterwards.

Venue for talks and refreshments: MB554
