Unit Seminar Series

The Medical Statistics and Epidemiology Seminar Series presents research in applied statistics and epidemiology. Seminars are principally for Division of Health Sciences staff and research students, however, visitors are also welcome to attend.

The seminar series runs approximately three times per term with a mix of internal and external speakers. This is a fairly informal programme in which staff and research students are encouraged to present their current work and to exchange ideas.

Meetings take place in the Medical School Building on the Gibbet Hill Campus unless otherwise specified. Lunch will usually be provided after seminars delivered by external speakers. If you wish to be added to the seminar mailing list or for any other enquiries regarding the seminars please email t.hamborg (at)
