GSI Seminar Series
The goals of this seminar series are to host extramural speakers who are internationally recognized researchers at the vanguard of genetics and genomics research, and to sponsor those speakers in an effort to build interactions and collaborations among Boston University investigators engaged in genetics and genomics research.
This monthly seminar series is held on the third Wednesday from 3-4 p.m. in the Conte Building, K103 (unless otherwise indicated). Student/Postdoc lunches will be held at noon in the Evans Building, GSI Conference Room, E307.
If you have suggestions for invited speakers, or if you would like to present an intramural seminar, please email firstname.lastname@example.org. This monthly seminar series is held monthly on the third Wednesday from 3-4 p.m. in the Conte Building, K103 (unless otherwise indicated).
