Lunchtime Seminar Series
In our Lunchtime Seminars, we highlight areas of ongoing molecular-science-and-engineering research at Imperial.
We bring together two researchers, normally from different departments, whose work relates to a common problem or goal.
Held over lunchtime in our MRes student cohort space, followed by refreshments, the informal seminars foster a relaxed environment for Imperial staff and students to engage in further discussion and networking.
