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.

Regards

Johannes

Update: Weekly programme (affecting 14 & 15 Jan)

Hi guys

Tomorrow’s tut (dr Smith) will be at CMJAH, 16:30. Thursday’s tut (Prof L├╝ndgren) will be at CMJAH and not CHBAH; time unchanged: 17:00.

Reminder for the guys writing in March: online exam applications close on Thursday 2015/01/15.

Regards

Johannes
