Join us on Thursday 9 February 9, 1-6pm in the Clark-Kennedy Lecture Theatre to discover and discuss different biological questions with a protein perspective!

The Faculty of Medicine and Dentistry (FMD) and School of Biological and Behavioural Sciences (SBBS) are pleased to welcome you to the Research Exchange Day at the Blizard Institute jointly organised by the Faculty of Medicine and Dentistry (FMD) and School of Biological and Behavioural Sciences (SBBS). 

Protein biologists within these faculties will give short talks on different biological questions they are tackling from the perspective of individual proteins to molecular systems. Several core facility managers will present posters on the in-house capabilities and services provided to carry out protein biology work at QMUL.

Registration is required for this event.

Please see below for the full schedule.
