The Centre for Trophoblast Research again ran its popular course in placental biology, online from Monday 11th to Friday 15th July 2022.

This annual course is aimed at students, post-docs, established researchers, medical & veterinary healthcare professionals and industry colleagues interested in cutting-edge placental biology and research.

Most content is pre-recorded lectures and practical sessions given by investigators at the forefront of the placental biology field. There are opportunities for attendees to give presentation talks and network, and there are daily live Q&A sessions with the speakers, (at 16:30 - 18:30 hrs. UK BST.)

The Q&A daily sessions are recorded and available to attendees, and the course will remain avaialble for two months after the course ends (date to be confirmed).
