Biology Graduate Student Seminar Series (BGSE 205)

The graduate research seminars form the revamped version of the BGSE 205 graduate course, in which Biology doctoral students present their research in affinity groups, each of which will meet once a month for one hour, generally with two speakers per meeting. The seminars are organized by students and divided into affinity groups focused around specific research topics (see table below). The seminars are open format and all members of the Division (students, faculty, postdocs) are encouraged to attend the seminars in the group(s) close to their research (and others if one would like, of course). 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 their second year, until they are ready to defend.
