Departmental Seminars

The subject matter of this informal seminar series ranges from presentations about current research in one's own lab or another lab related to one's research (e.g., presenting a recent paper, as in a typical journal club format) to discussing and presenting the ideas for a grant.  All presentations are from 12:00-1:00 p.m.  For information about these seminars, please contact Dr. Jerry Feng (jfeng@bcd.tamhsc.edu).  The seminar programs for 2013 and 2012 are shown below.
