Cambridge University Engineering Department
PhD and Post-doc Bioengineering Seminar

Thursday 16th March 2017, 8:45am-2pm

Location: LR4

This event will concentrate on bioengineering research currently underway within the Department, through a series of presentations by research students and postdocs. All members of the Department are welcome to attend, particularly research students and postdocs. Fourth year undergraduates interested in graduate studies in bioengineering are encouraged to attend.

Registration for catering is closed, but please just turn up!
