Website access

The EASTBIO website is currently being moved to a different server. As a result, remote access to it for registered users (EASTBIO students and supervisors) may be blocked. Students and supervisors not based at the University of Edinburgh may not be able to access some of its pages during this week.

We hope that the reconfiguration will be complete by the end of this week (21-28 September). Apologies for the inconvenience.

For any query, please email EASTBIO.
