UCL (MRC Building, LMCB, 2nd Floor Seminar Room)

The IPLS Meet-ups are regular afternoon meetings where students and postdocs working at the interface of physics and biology at UCL and neighbouring institutions present their work. They are a great opportunity to learn about the newest research at the interface of biology and physics, chemistry, mathematics and engineering, and meet other researchers interested in similar topics. The talks are followed by an informal drinks reception to promote interdisciplinary networking.
