Seminars

During the academic year, E2G2 seminars occur weekly on Friday afternoons at 3:00 in Hutch 316.  Our group also participates in the Biology Departments weekly Monday “donut talk” series at noon, during which visiting scientists present their work on a diverse range of topics.  A complete list of departmental seminars is maintained at the Department of Biology’s homepage.
