The goals of this seminar series are i) to host extramural speakers who are internationally recognized researchers at the vanguard of genetics and genomics research, and ii) to promote interactions and collaborations among Boston University investigators engaged in genetics and genomics research.

This monthly seminar series is held on a Tuesday from 12-1 p.m. in the Conte Building, K103 (unless otherwise indicated).

If you have suggestions for invited speakers, or if you would like to present an intramural seminar, please email gsi@bu.edu.
