What: Starting this summer, a new seminar series has been created to provide an opportunity for students and postdocs to share their research with the wider MCB community and foster more cohesiveness among MCB labs scattered across campus. A social hour sponsored by various MCB labs will immediately follow the seminars to allow for continued informal interactions between faculty, staff, postdocs, and students.
Details: The seminars will begin on Thursday, June 16th running every Thursday through the summer until August 18th. They will be held in 101 Barker at 4 PM. Each seminar will be composed of two 25 minute talks (with 5 minutes for questions) given by MCB students and postdocs. Social hour with light snacks, alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages will follow in the Barker courtyard. Theentire MCB community is strongly encouraged to attend!
We need: MCB postdocs and graduate are invited to sign up to speak! We also ask faculty to encourage lab members to consider giving a talk. The talks absolutely do not have to be a polished story: they can be as formal or informal as one wishes. The main purpose is to familiarize others with the rich science that is going on in the department.
If interested in giving a talk, please send Josh Bayes (firstname.lastname@example.org) an email expressing your interest and dates you'd be willing to speak. Please send a few dates so we can accommodate everyone in the schedule.
We realize the summer is a busy travel time (meetings, vacation, etc.), but we encourage everyone to attend when they can. We believe this is a fantastic opportunity to learn more about the department and support the outstanding research going in the department.
