Bosch Young Investigators Seminar Series 2015

September 2015

The second Bosch Young Investigator Seminar will be on Friday 25th September from 12-2 PM in Room N248, Anderson Stuart.

Upon organising this seminar, the committee realised all the speakers were female so we thought it would be a great opportunity to promote the wonderful female talent we have in the institute and to celebrate women in science. We hope you are able to make this special lunch time seminar to hear talks from six female researchers:
