SNS Friday Feeling Science Seminars 2023

Professor Alan Ryder is organising a seminar series for Friday afternoons here at the University of Galway as part of hte School of Natural Sciences. The goal is to bring SNS researchers and the wider community together and showcase the great science here in the University. The format will be principal investigators delivering a keynote talk about their research with some of their lab members also contributing talks. The topics will rotate around Physics, Earth & Ocean Sciences, and Biological Sciences (thre three constituent disciplines in SNS). We will be covering everything from parasites and rocks, to medical devices and drug something for everyone. The preliminary schedule is as follows:
