The Biology Seminar Series:

  • exposes students to an important form of scientific communication: the research seminar.
  • provides an opportunity for students and faculty to interact with the scientists from other institutions.
  • allows students to meet informally with speakers in small groups or at dinner to discuss science, careers, and research.
  • encourages students to begin joining in scientific dialogue by asking questions during and after seminars.
