Each month each Lab group gets the opportunity to present to their colleagues internally within their own node. These seminars feature a pertinent topic to their ongoing research.
Our online seminars encourage inter-nodal interaction and bring us together as a united group as we listen to the latest news from the other nodes in PEB.
Internationally, we have respected speakers from all over the world presenting to our staff and students from leading institutions. This ensures a continuous stream of education and information sharing which is paramount at PEB.
