*Please note that all of our seminars for 2022 will take place virtually, unless specified otherwise. Please sign up to receive our seminar announcements

Computational Biology Seminar Series

The Computational Biology Seminars are held virtually on the second and fourth Mondays of every month at 11 AM. Visit UTSW Events to see upcoming seminars using the tag Bioinformatics to filter events.

May 9, 2022: Cellular Sensing of Material Stiffness and Negative Durotaxis by David Odde, Ph.D.

Hosted by Khuloud Jaqaman, Ph.D.

U-Hack Med NeuroChats

Inspired by the global journal club offered by The Sloan Kettering Center, the Lyda Hill Department of Bioinformatics is introducing a virtual series focused on Neuroinformatics, starting June 2022. We will invite first authors (graduate students, postdoctoral fellows, early career researchers) of important cutting-edge publications to share their insights and research with a global audience and participate in a dynamic discussion-based event. Check out our website https://www.u-hackmed.org/. Join our mailing list

First session:
Thursday, June 9th, 11AM CT, Zoom Registration

Speaker: Mark Plitt, Stanford U. graduate student in neuroscience

Paper: Plitt, M.H., Giocomo, L.M., Experience-dependent contextual codes in the hippocampus, Nat Neurosci 24, 705–714 (2021).

Causality Journal Club

This series highlights important publications on Causal Inference and is presented by graduate students and postdoctoral fellows for stimulating discussion and exchange of ideas. The Journal Club is held virtually once a month on Tuesdays at 4 PM. This is a departmental journal club for interested members of the Lyda Hill Department of Bioinformatics and Green Center for Systems Biology. If you are interested in attending, please contact Prapti Mody
