BTP Trainee Seminar

BTP trainees participate in a weekly biotechnology seminar in which they present one seminar annually. These seminars expose students to new research advances (both within and outside their areas of expertise), facilitate interaction among BTP trainees and other scientists, and promote understanding and communication about research problems across a variety of disciplines. In addition to trainee research presentations, the seminar series includes talks by prominent industry researchers and an NIH-required research ethics education component. The seminar series is widely publicized on campus, and frequently draws an audience from many scientific disciplines.

The BTP seminar meets on Wednesdays at 3:30pm in Room 175 HF DeLuca Biochemistry Labs (433 Babcock Drive) and concludes by 4:15pm.
