BCVI Seminar series

Previously held every 3-4 months, our seminars are on hold at the moment while we work with partners CBTCE and RadNet Cambridge on our 'What's Happening in Brian Tumour Research' engagement series of events.


Our seminars showcase brain tumour research across the Virtual Institute membership and provide a networking opportunity for teams in Cambridge.

All seminars are also available as a list on the University of Cambridge's website

A list of past seminars is available below.
