Events and Research Seminars

New Lunchtime Research Seminar Series

An essential part of IBBS is to facilitate communication of information and collaboration between internal and external researchers working in the areas of biomedical and biomolecular sciences.

Throughout the year the Institute of Biomedical and Biomolecular Science holds a popular series of seminars given by high profile speakers.

These seminars take on Wednesdays at 1pm in either the King Henry or St. Michael building lecture theatres. Refreshments are served immediately after the seminar, where you are invited to take the opportunity to talk with our guest speaker and colleagues.
