Institute seminar series

Institute seminar series

2019-2020 Seminar header pic

The new season of Institute seminars is almost upon us. We are in the process of inviting some great external speakers, so we hope that as many of you as possible will be able to attend. The seminars will alternate between the Gilmorehill and Garscube campuses and include seminars hosted by the Centre for Virus Research at Garscube.

The Institute seminars cover a broad range of areas, from biodiversity, evolutionary biology, ecosystems and conservation through to areas of pathogen biology, transmission, epidemiology and modelling. We hope there will be something for everyone. 

Before each seminar an email will go out with details of the speaker, the title, the host and an invitation to meet with the speaker. If you would like to meet with any of the speakers please contact the appropriate host.

Also see our listing for upcoming Internal Seminars (Friday seminar series) which features talks by PhD students and also the Postdoc & PI seminars.

Hope to see you all in the audience...
