Biology Graduate Student Seminar Series (BGSE 205)

The graduate research seminar series, BGSE 205, is a graduate course, in which Biology doctoral students present their research in affinity groups, each of which meet once a month for one hour, generally with two speakers per meeting. The seminars are organized by students and divided into groups focused around specific research topics (see table below). Seminars are open format with all members of the Division (students, faculty, postdocs) encouraged to attend seminars in the group(s) related to their research work and interests. The graduate student speakers receive feedback from those attending the seminars, including input on their presentations from faculty. Students present once per year, beginning in the second year, until they are ready to defend.
