Cell and Molecular Biology Seminar Series

This seminar series offers graduate students in Biology an opportunity to communicate their proposed research or research findings in progress in a setting not unlike thesis assessment and defence presentations, and conference platform presentations. Individual student seminars are followed by question/answer or discussion sessions. Students attending the seminars provide written comments to the presenter regarding the strengths and weaknesses of the seminar content and form. The coordinator will discuss the seminar with the student either after the talk or in an office appointment.  The discussion will focus on effective aspects of the presentation, and strategies for strengthening other aspects of the seminar.

This year the C&M seminar series will be held on Mondays from 12:30 to 1:30 pm in NCB 295 starting on January 29th. You can also join us on Zoom at the following link (https://westernuniversity.zoom.us/j/93299647304).

For further information please contact Jim Karagiannis.

Guests welcome.
