#DryLabsRealScience

#DryLabsRealScience has been meeting twice a month to discuss the challenges of lab provision in the face of COVID-19. We share good practice, experiences and tips around an alternative to lab provisions and research projects. We hold fortnightly webinars; if you would like to join the mailing list and receive invites to the sessions, or if you'd like to present a talk, then please email any one of us using the grey buttons.
