Newsflash: tuts of today and tomorrow

Hi guys

Prof Milner apologised for missing her tut last week. She will be giving both parts of the smooth muscle agents tutorial today at 17:00 at CMJ.

Please also remember to attend dr Radford’s tut tomorrow, 17:00 at CMJ (Hypoxia/respiratory failure). Having tutorials on Fridays are not ideal but this is the only time that he is available.

Remember to circulate an attendance register. Someone rotating at CMJ can then give it to me the following day.
