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 until further notice.
The CRH has initiated a virtual research clinic series of presentations as below. This will be populated as details develop.
Senior academic, postdoctoral researcher, student and Centre related presentations.
These are online, using MS Teams and available to the Little France community on the dates shown, between 2-3pm (unless otherwise stated).
