Accelerating Biosciences discovery in FoNS – a series of events dedicated to Advanced Research Fellows and Lecturers to showcase their research to Imperial’s academic community

(this event is for Imperial researchers only)

Please contact Ester Buchaca-Domingo if you would like to attend this session via MS Teams meeting. 

The Accelerating Biosciences theme aims to bring together expertise from across College and external stakeholders to integrate automation, AI, biotechnology and molecular tools and technologies to systematically address fundamental questions in biology. Technological advances will both lead new biological discovery, rapidly identifying targets for biological intervention, as well as translating discovery into applied biotechnology applications (in drug discovery, food security, industrial biotechnology etc).

The FoNS theme champions  Professors Ramon Vilar and Geoff Baldwin have organised a new series of showcasing/networking events for Advanced Fellows and Lecturers in FoNS within the ‘Accelerating Biosciences’ cross-departmental theme. Please read below the schedule for this third session:
