Friday seminars are a key component of the DBRG mission and help to build collaborations among labs. They provide a forum for graduate students, postdoctoral fellows, and faculty to present current research and to get feedback from colleagues in an informal setting. Seminars range from polished presentations of complete work to the presentation of work-in-progress and trouble shooting. Friday seminars are a great forum for vocalizing ideas and possible future plans for which you would like to get feedback.
Seminars are given by BU investigators and by invited outside speakers. Anyone interested in a particular seminar topic, or in Developmental Biology in general, is encouraged to attend. Please contact us if you would like to give a seminar or have suggestions for outside speakers from the Boston area.
Seminars are held on the 2nd and 4th Friday of each month from 12:00-1:00 pm in L311. Pizza and soda is served.
