Seminar Series: Spring 2020

The Biology department offers a seminar (BIOL 41100/41200) series each semester representing a broad range of topics in  biology.  These seminars are open to the entire community.  Refreshments are offered prior to the seminar and students are invited to meet with the speaker in a small group following the talk to answer questions related to the topic presented, or to answer questions regarding different careers in Biology.
