Our forums are relaxed sessions in which researchers from a diverse range of biomedical and biological fields present their research in a three-slide format.

These talks are designed to promote discussion, foster interdisciplinary links and build collaborations. Talks are given by Centre fellows, members of the wider research group, and invited speakers.

Talks are open to all members of the University and RD&E - please let us know at tree@exeter.ac.uk if you'd like to present, or if you have suggestions for talks. Please contact us to be added to the mailing list!

Seminars are typically held every Thursday afternoon at 2:30pm in the Living Systems Institute Seminar Rooms (next to the hub).
