IPLS Meet-Up November 2017

22 November 2017, 2:30 pm

Event Information

Open to



UCL MRC Building, Laboratory for Molecular Cell Biology, Seminar Room (2nd Floor)

The Meet-ups are a great opportunity to learn about the newest research going on in areas of biological physics at UCL and meet others who might be interested in similar topics.  These are informal events where students, postdocs and occasionally new lecturers working on a biological physics related project share their work and ideas over an afternoon. Coffee break will take place half way between the talks and a reception with drinks and snacks is provided after the talks in the LMCB common room.
