CRISPR CLUB

We run a monthly CRISPR club to bring together researchers with a working interest in CRISPR/Cas9 aiming to facilitate further inter-departmental communication and collaboration within KCL. The CRISPR club takes place at New Hunt's House, 4th floor -  large seminar room.

Next CRISPR club - 2nd of October, 10am
