Monthly events to share science and have a chat!

The community hosts events to chat about cool innovations in computational biology and bioinformatics. We have events across the university at the main campus at Gilmorehill and at various centres at Garscube and then often head to the pub. Come join us!

Next Event:

3pm on October 13th in the lecture theatre of the Cancer Research UK Beatson Institute at the Garscube Campus. Location info can be found here. And then the pub afterwards!

Speakers from the Beatson will include Prof Crispin Miller, Dr Kristina Kirschner and Prof Robert Insall.

There is no need to register to attend in-person. If you would like to attend remotely, please contact the organiser Dr Holly Hall.
