Research clinics

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 research clinic talks going forward.

We do hope to initiate these once again once the situation improves.





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) in the Wellcome Auditorium of the Queen's Medical Research Institute, Edinburgh bioQuarter.

View the location of the Queens Medical Research Institute.

The Spring Research Clinics in 2020 will include talks by Centre for Reproductive Health Principal Investigators (45 min talk and 15 min for questions), postdoctoral researchers and students (each speaker allotted a 20 minute slot = 15 mins talk and 5 mins for questions).
