Seminars

Seminars in the Department of Biology are typically held weekly or biweekly. The members of the Department invite speakers from other institutions and from within the University to give seminar lectures on their research. In addition, graduate students present their research as part of their degree requirements. Seminars are a valuable time for the members of Biology to come together for socialization and scientific discourse.
