Cambridge Cardiovascular



Seminars take place monthly, featuring a leading international speaker from the cardiovascular field and attracting an audience from around Cambridge and beyond.

If you have someone in mind who you would like to invite to give a seminar, virtually or in person when things return to near normal in the future, please let us know.  Our seminars are listed on and on our website. We need to keep the science communication going!
