We schedule a range of seminars each semester. Speakers include School staff and invited high-profile domestic and international speakers who have expertise across diverse biological disciplines and are at varying career stages.

Students, staff, visiting academics and the public are welcome to attend. No RSVP is required.

Latest COVID-19 advice: As a precautionary response to slow the rate of community transition of the novel coronavirus (COVID-19), UQ has made a decision to cancel all University events unless they are critical to teaching or research. This includes student, academic and public events on and off campus until the end of June 2020. Some events listed here may be cancelled or postponed.

The school seminars hold seminars every two weeks on Fridays at 11am in the Goddard Building (Building 8), Room 139 (teaching weeks only). We update the schedule at the start of each semester.

We hold morning tea before each seminar on the Great Court lawn outside the Goddard Building.
