May - June 2017. The Trinity Term Seminar Series.
Again featuring four speakers over eight weeks, the Trinity Series will have a policy-focus. Each of these workshops will bring together policy practitioners, funding body representatives, and research collaborators to discuss a future research agenda around the social dimensions of the microbiome. This series will culminate with a full day Research Agenda Workshop in July 2017.
