BU Professorial Inaugural Lecture Series 2009/10

BU invites members of the public to come and hear about world-leading research being undertaken by some of its recently appointed Professors and Visiting Professors.

This prestigious series of events provides the opportunity for newly appointed Professors and Visiting Professors to share their work with family and colleagues and for members of the public to come and find out more about the world-leading research undertaken at BU.
