The Department of Biophysics hosts a vibrant seminar series, where senior leaders and rising stars discuss their latest work and spend a day meeting with faculty, postdocs, and students. Seminars are held on the second Thursday of each month. The sessions alternate with the Molecular Biophysics Discussion group (hosted by the Molecular Biophysics Graduate Program) and the Department of Biochemistry seminars.
Lectures are held at noon in ND13.218 unless otherwise noted.
