#Inspire lecture series

The Biosciences #Inspire lecture series champions excellent scientists from minority or marginalised groups in the biosciences. Its goal is to promote discussions about the issues that impact these groups, so that we might create a more inclusive working and learning environment, where everyone feels represented.
