Seminar Schedule

The COM Research Seminar series is designed to serve all graduate student, post-doc and faculty researchers in the College of Medicine and/or affiliated with the BMS. An outstanding menu of speakers is being recruited, representing a broad range of interests. Speakers are encouraged to pitch their talks to a broad audience without compromising detail or rigor. We hope that all faculty, post-docs and graduate students will make an effort to incorporate this event into their regular weekly schedule of activities.
