Research in Progress

Spring 2014

Throughout the year, each of our students and post docs gets a chance to present their research to the Genetics and Genomics community at Boston University for feedback to help drive their research in new directions.  Each talk is an open forum for the BU community to discuss the presenters work or other topics after the talk.

 • Research in Progress is held on alternating Fridays in the Evans 613 conference room from 11:00 to 12:00 pm.

• Lunch will be served and all interested students and faculty are welcome to attend.
