CHSTM seminar series

The CHSTM seminar is held fortnightly during the teaching semester. Unless otherwise indicated, the seminar takes place on Tuesdays at 4pm. Seminars are typically around 50 minutes in length, followed by a period for audience questions and a visit to a local pub. Join us a few minutes before 4pm for a cup of tea and a biscuit.

Unless otherwise indicated, meetings will take place in the CHSTM Seminar Room, 2.57 Simon Building (see Maps and travel).

Please contact Dr Harriet Palfreyman or Professor Pratik Chakrabarti if you have any queries about our seminar arrangements.

Please sign up for our mailing list if you want to receive updates about seminars and other CHSTM events, or follow us on Twitter: @ManCHSTM.
