The Department of Physiology offers many opportunities for fellows and graduate students to expand their knowledge and training, including a monthly seminar series conducted by faculty and researchers from UT Southwestern and elsewhere.
Postdoctoral fellows and graduate students are expected to attend these Physiology Department-sponsored seminars to ensure broad training within the Department’s academic training programs.
Seminars are held at 4 p.m. Mondays in ND13.218.
