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 researchers as below. This will be populated as details develop.
Senior academics, postdoctoral researchers and current students present their work to the Little France community on the dates shown, between 2-3pm (unless otherwise stated) online, using MS Teams.
