Colloquium

During term, our Department hosts an esteemed biologist each Wednesday.  The visitor gives a lecture with Q&A, beginning at 11:10am in room D139 in the Science Building.  All faculty and graduate students are welcome to join the visitor for lunch afterwards, and to schedule one-on-one meetings with the host.  Look below the current schedule for those from past terms.
