PhB Seminars

We’ve had PhB students undertaking some really interesting research projects in RSB this semester. We thought we could showcase this research with joint seminars. These will take place from 12 noon on Tuesday, 1 November in the Jan Anderson Room. 

Bring your lunch and come check out some great research!
