Life Sciences Masterclasses

The aim of this series, launched by PDN postdocs, is to provide a forum for expert reviews and discussion on 'hot topics' and current techniques in Biology. The series is now organised by Postdocs in Biology throughout Cambridge and open to all researchers from the Departments of Biological Sciences. Unless stated otherwise, the series will be hosted in the Postdoc Centre, 16 Mill Lane. Talks will occasionally take place at the Postdoc Centre, Biomedical campus.

Free beer and pizza is provided for all talks!

Upcoming talks can be found on our  Talks@cam list. You can also follow us on the Masterclasses Facebook page and twitter @CamPdOCMasClass
