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:  Spring Semester seminars will start at 2:30 pm. and are held in the Animal Science/Molecular Biology Room 103. Due to restrictions because of COVID-19, we are holding these seminars via Zoom until further notice.
