Milner Seminar Series

We are delighted to relaunch our popular seminar series with an exciting new format, to further facilitate interdisciplinary connections and provide a range of insights on disease and therapeutic approaches. Events in our seminar series will include speakers from academia and industry/biotech, each addressing a common theme. Seminars will be followed by networking over refreshments for further discussion with colleagues from a variety of roles and sectors.

To encourage informal discussion, these events will be held in person at the Jeffrey Cheah Biomedical Centre. For our national and international delegates, many of the talks will later become available to view on our YouTube channel
