The Biosciences department runs two seminar series: Departmental seminars that cover a wide range of biological topics, and EEE seminars that cover topics related to Ecology, Evolution and Environment. Please scroll down to find information about these seminars and also recordings of some of the previous talks.
Departmental Seminars are held during term time, on Thursdays from 13.00 - 14.00. The majority of seminars will take place in Rowan House, RH001 (the HR building, opposite Biosciences), some talks will be online. Recognising that our audience is likely to be broad, speakers have been asked to make their talks accessible, focusing a substantial part of their material on general issues and background to their work. If you have suggestions for additional speakers or would like to know more about the program, please email: email@example.com.
Ecology, Evolution and Environment (EEE) seminar series (2022/23)
These seminars will take place at 12pm on a Tuesday in L50 (between Biosciences and Psychology) though a small number will be online via Zoom. In these cases the joining links will be emailed in advance. Links to recorded seminars will be also posted here after each seminar. If you have any questions, please contact the EEE seminar organisers Dr Andreanna Welch (firstname.lastname@example.org) and Dr Will Feeney (email@example.com).
