Hello

Welcome to the University of Portsmouth Alumni Association blog.

Brain Tumour Research Laboratory Tour

Brain Tumour Research Laboratory Tour

On Thursday 6 July our alumni were invited to attend a laboratory tour of the University of Portsmouth’s Centre of Excellence for Brain Tumour Research.

With an exclusive seminar from Professor Geoff Pilkington our alumni were already hooked by the work that goes into brain tumour research and after a few rugby anecdotes, a couple of beer jokes and some scientific questions Geoff, and Dr Helen Fillmore took the group on a tour or the laboratories.

After experiencing what goes on behind the scenes with the research our guests, along with Geoff, joined us for Pimms at Café CoCo to wind down after the tour.

Thank you to everyone who joined us for this event, and a special thank you to Professor Geoff Pilkington, Dr Helen Fillmore, Patries Fisher and Café CoCo. 

If you are interested in attending any of our upcoming events all details can be found on our Facebook page, or by keeping your details up to date with the Alumni Association.
