Our 'Facility Fridays' Seminar series aims to showcase the range of facilities and technical support available to researchers in the School of Biological Sciences and provide a platform for the excellent people working hard to support School research.

These 30 minute lunchtime workshops feature paired talks from Facility Managers and  Biological Sciences Researchers who will detail the opportunites available at each Facility and outline a short research story made possible through engagement with the Facility.

These events are held online at 12 midday on the last Friday of the month, and are open to all members of the School.
