3rd June 2008

3rd June 2008, 12:00 PM
Location: Main Seminar Room, MRC HGU, Western General Hospital, Edinburgh
Host: Colin Semple
Parking: It's possible, though far from easy, to find a parking space on the hospital campus. But probably the best option is to park in a neighbouring street such as craigleith hill avenue or carrington road - they have loads of pay and display spaces

Please, add your name to the participants list if you are planning to come, and whether you would prefer a veggie option.
