Fellows and Trainees Short Talk Series

Biomedical Research Facility (BRF2) - Room 2A03   -   11:45 am to 1:00 pm 

Lunch will be provided

The goals of the series are to provide a platform for trainees to present their work-in-progress, receive feedback from their peers and our faculty, and develop interactions and camaraderie between different groups that lead to new multidisciplinary research avenues.   

Faculty Hosts: Dr. Tariq Rana and Dr. Lars Bode
