The Struther Arnott Lecture Series, in memory of former Principal, Professor Struther Arnott, invites some of the best scientists working on infectious diseases from around the world to present their recent findings to a wide audience of interested students, staff and alumni.
The Biomedical Sciences Research Complex (BSRC) is a truly interdisciplinary research centre, one of the first to embrace and narrow the void spanning biology, chemistry, physics, mathematics, computing and medicine. Its success is due to the scientists conducting world-class research utilising and developing cutting edge technologies and methodologies focusing on the broad theme of infection and diseases.
This event will take place on the Hopin virtual event platform. Sign-up and joining details to be confirmed.
