University of Otago Regional Centre

The University of Otago NRCGD Site Team, led by Associate Professor Peter Dearden of Genetics Otago, have created a regional centre for Dunedin students to participate in the LENScience Senior Biology Seminar Series. Coordinated by NRCGD PhD student Megan Leask, this centre will provide a great environment for students to listen, share ideas and participate in discussions around the seminar topics.
