Faculty Research Seminar Series 2016 – 2017

The monthly lunchtime Faculty Research Seminar Series events are open to all staff and students from across the University.

Focusing on one of the eight strategic research domains, the events offer an opportunity to celebrate the Faculty’s research achievement and stimulate scientific interaction.

Each month one of the Research Domain Directors selects two speakers from within the Faculty to highlight and showcase an area of research in their domain. There will usually be one senior speaker and one junior/early career researcher.

Speakers include clinical, non-clinical and basic science researchers. Presentations are pitched at a non-specialist level, as the series aims to attract people from across the Faculty.

When are the events?

The events are held once a month on a Wednesday lunchtime.

Each event lasts an hour, comprising two 20 minute presentations, with each presentation being followed by 5-10 minutes questions and discussion. 

Lunch is available 12.30-1pm; presentations run 1-2pm.

How can I take part?

Registration is recommended and can be made via Eventbrite, or by contacting 

The series is led by Professor Nigel Hooper and administered from the Faculty Strategic Funding Team (by Lorna Tittle).
