These talks are FREE and are offered to students, staff and clinicians.  Also, an invitation is extended to our colleagues in the HSE, in the voluntary and private sectors also.  The seminars are inter-disciplinary – so everyone is welcome.  We aim to run 3 seminars per term each academic year.  If you are interested in giving a seminar please contact Ms. Kerry Murphy, Dept Administrator on  Please re-visit this page for future upcoming seminars!
