IGMM seminar series
The IGMM Seminar Series attracts distinguished scientists from around the world working in the fields of genetics, molecular medicine and cancer research, and whose research complements that being done at IGMM.
A series of mini-symposia focusing on themes of cancer genetics and genomics. These will explore our growing strengths in this area across the IGMM, featuring a variety of speakers in each session within a topic.
Sessions will be held on Thursdays at 12pm and are open to all within CMVM, University of Edinburgh.
