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. Note that departmental seminars during Fall 2014 semester will start at 2:10 pm. in Berry Center Auditorium - Room 138.
