Biology Department Seminars

Biology Department Seminars

Charles Darwin
Biology Departmental Seminars are usually held on Fridays at 2 pm in Room 116 of the Supple (Science) Building, or as announced below. A brief Q&A period typically follows each seminar. After that, everyone (age 21 and over only) is welcome to attend a reception for the speaker in the courtyard of the Old Greenhouse, liquid refreshments provided. To find out more about the speakers, follow the links to their web pages, and check out the seminar (you never know what interesting person might be speaking). TBA indicates "to be announced" unless the date arrives and no seminar speaker has been scheduled at which point it means we do not have a seminar speaker for that day.   Please check frequently.
