The PDN Foster talks is a seminar series that involves high profile internal and external speakers, who are experts in fields relevant to research interests in the Department.

We welcome people from the wider scientific community of Cambridge University as well as from within the Department to join us for these seminars. The talks are aimed for a broad audience, from all career stages, undergraduates to PIs.

This seminar series also provides an invaluable opportunity for staff and students to discuss with the guest speaker both before and after the talk, and often helps to foster collaborations.

All talks will be live Zoom sessions followed by online Q&A - links will be circulated before the talks.
