Joint Fisher Centre & Bloomsbury Research Institute Meeting
Wednesday, July 20, 2016 from 12:00 PM to 5:00 PM (BST)
This is a special joint event involving the RA Fisher Centre for Computational Biology and the Bloomsbury Research Institute.
The Bloomsbury Research Institute is a centre of excellence on infectious diseases resulting from a joint venture between the London School of Hygiene & Tropical Medicine and UCL
The goal of RA Fisher Centre meetings is to bring together UCL and Crick Institute research groups active in Computational Biology research. The meeting location alternates between UCL and LRI, with this next event taking place at UCL.
The meeting will take place at the LRI in room G37 A and B.
