You are most welcome to join this online Edinburgh Infectious Diseases workshop on Thursday 29 April. Please register on Eventbrite.

This cross-University event will bring together researchers from all career stages, and from a wide range of disciplines to share their work, discuss areas of common interest and explore opportunities for future collaboration. 

We very much hope  that you will be able to join us.

Register now
