International Webinar Series

Our International Webinar Series has been designed as a platform to hear from the best international speakers that are aligned to our core areas of interest. These include biomolecular design and assembly in the cell, development and delivery of bioactive molecules, minimal biology towards cell-like systems, advanced computing and digital biology.

Upcoming webinars

30 November 2022  Prof Natalio Krasnogor (Newcastle University)
