The Biological Sciences Department Seminar Series invites campus professional scientists to give a lecture on their current research. It is an important weekly event for our program, in which new findings and ideas are shared and discussed within an open and social setting. Department faculty members, staff, post-docs, and graduate and undergraduate students routinely attend the seminar. In addition, interested persons from the campus and greater community are very welcome to participate.
The Seminar Series is held in Hall of Science (HSCI) Room 102 on Thursdays at 4:00pm.
