Medical research seminars

Medical Research Seminars
Each week, every Thursday at noon, researchers and members of the public are invited to attend our medical research seminars.

Local, national and international experts speak about health and disease. While the seminars tend to be very scientific in nature, community members can get a lot out of them and hear about the very latest in the field of medical science.
