MAHSC Seminar Series
The Manchester Academic Health Science Centre (MAHSC), Health Innovation Manchester’s Seminar Series will showcase the great discovery and clinical science being undertaken within Manchester and its impact on the health of the local population.
The series will give a local platform to the nationally and internationally renowned scientists of MAHSC to share their work with clinical/non-clinical and university colleagues, but also crucially members of the wider community seeking insight into innovations in the delivery of healthcare.
Nothing is as important nor evolving as rapidly as our understanding of COVID-19, which will be the focus of the initial seminars.
