Departmental Seminars

The Molecular Biology Department’s seminar program is one of the very best on campus. We make a strong effort to bring in visiting scientists who can provide a entertaining, enlightening, and current research report on an important area of molecular biology. Shown below is a listing of the current semester’s seminar speakers.

PLEASE NOTE:  Fall Semester seminars will start at 2:10 pm. and are held in the Berry Center Auditorium - Room 138.
