British Biophysical Society 2014 Biennial Meeting 9-11th July 2014

Banner for BBS 2014 Meeting

FINDING US: The conference is located in or near Lecture Rooms 3 on the Science Concourse. The easiest way to find it is to find the bridge leading to the library entry then turn around and head away from the library. It is about 200 m (I guess) on your left. Alternatively you could turn up to the conference reception which I believe will be in the Students Union building sort of down, behind and under the supermarket. If your search for "Chemistry and Science Concourse” or "Students Union” on the interactive campus map that may help:
