As part of the MRC Centre for Reproductive Health's commitment to research, a series of research clinics is on offer to the local scientific and clinical community.
In line with public advice, the Centre for Reproductive Health has now cancelled all in-person research clinic talks going forward.
The CRH has initiated a virtual research clinic series presented by centre academics and researchers as below. This will be populated as details develop.
