Seminars

All are welcome

Undergraduates and postgraduates are particularly encouraged to attend, as these seminars can provide exposure to a wide range of ideas and research areas that you might not otherwise have an opportunity to learn about.  

The seminars are held on Tuesday at 1:00pm, in B/B/002 (Biology lecture theatres) (unless otherwise stated). Presentations usually last for 45 minutes, followed by a lively discussion. Please contact the seminar series co-ordinator, Kathryn Arnold (email kathryn.arnold@york.ac.uk), for further information.
