Research Seminars

We host a seminar programme designed to highlight exciting developments in Epithelial Physiology. The programme includes seminars from scientists with established international reputations but also provides an opportunity for young independent researchers to present their recent observations. The programme is designed to appeal to researchers across the whole Faculty of Medical Sciences and covers the roles of epithelial and membrane transport in health and disease in relation to a broad range of topics such as physiology, pharmacology, neuroscience, cell signalling and cancer research. In addition to the ERG programme, the Institute for Cell & Molecular Biosciences seminar programme also includes a number of seminars on topics related to epithelial research. Seminar programmes from previous years are listed in the archive.
