Watch our seminars
Our Pharmacology, Anatomical Neuropharmacology and Drug Discovery Seminars are held every Tuesday lunchtime during term time. The programme features speakers covering all our main research themes - signalling, cardiovascular pharmacology, neuropharmacology and medical chemistry/drug discovery - and includes academics from the UK and overseas.
We also aim to feature academics at all stages of their career. Each seminar is hosted by a member of our academic staff and are held from 12noon on Tuesdays, in person in our David Smith Lecture Theatre and available remotely via Teams.
From Hilary Term 2023, seminars will be recorded (where speakers are happy for us to do so) and will be available to view here.
