Centre for Reproductive Health

Seminar series 2012

The Centre for Reproductive Biology organises an annual programme of seminars by research scientists from around the world whose work complements that being done within MRC Human Reproductive Sciences Unit and University of Edinburgh Division of Reproductive and Developmental Sciences.

The programme also features presentations by Unit and University scientists and students.

Attendees for seminars should be seated five minutes before the advertised start time. Mobile phones and other devices with audible alarms should be switched off when entering the Auditorium. An Induction Loop system is in operation within the Auditorium.
