Who is it for?
The monthly Faculty Research Series events are open to all staff and students from across the Faculty of Medical and Human Sciences and the University, offering an opportunity to celebrate research achievement and stimulate scientific interaction. Each month one host School or Institute from the Faculty will pair with a different School or Institute to highlight and showcase similar topics from different perspectives. The 2015 series is led by Professor David Eisner and administered from the Faculty Research Office.
Held on Wednesday lunchtimes, each meeting lasts an hour, including two 20 minute presentations – one from a senior and one from a more junior member of Faculty staff. Each presentation will be followed by a short discussion. A buffet lunch will be available from 12.30. Presentations begin at 1pm.
