Ph.D. students in the MCIP program participate in monthly research seminars where students present their ongoing work to MCIP faculty, students and other friends and colleagues. The seminars provide a forum at which students can hone their presentation skills, receive feedback and constructive suggestions, and identify shared scientific interests with their colleagues in the MCIP program.

Lunch is provided! Please join us! 

All seminars are held at noon in the Terasaki Life Sciences Building, Room 1100.
