EMBRACE multidisciplinary seminars in antimicrobial resistance

EMBRACE organises regular seminars which are open to all Imperial College staff, students and affiliates. The seminars are intended for a multidisciplinary audience. Presentations last about 20 minutes, after which there will be plenty of time for questions and discussions.
