Lunchtime seminars

The lunchtime seminar is held on Tuesdays during the teaching semester, unless otherwise indicated, at 1pm in the CHSTM Seminar Room, 2.57 Simon Building (see how to find us for directions). Lunchtime seminars are typically no more than 30 minutes in length, followed by a period for audience questions (ending before 2pm).

Each semester's lunchtime seminar series is organised by postgraduates within the Centre. The current organiser is Kate Hiepko.

Please sign up for our mailing list if you want to receive updates about seminars and other CHSTM events.
