GSI Seminar Series
A semimonthly series held on the first and third Tuesdays from 3:00-4:00pm in Room 107-108 at 670 Albany Street (unless otherwise noted). The dual goals of this seminar series are to invite extramural speakers who are internationally recognized researchers at the vanguard of genetics and genomics research, and to sponsor intramural speakers in an effort to build interactions and collaborations among Boston University investigators engaged in genetics and genomics research.
To help increase the accessibility of the GSI Seminar Series, they will be broadcast online. For more information please visit the Webinar Page.
If you would like to join the GSI Seminar Committee, have suggestions for invited speakers, or if you would like to present an intramural seminar, please email email@example.com.
