4S Summer Seminar Series

BME graduate students organize the weekly Student Summer Seminar Series ("4S") to give graduate students and post-docs an opportunity present in a low-pressure setting.

To facilitate representation from across all research stages, 4S presentations have three possible formats: 40 minute seminar to prepare for job interviews or defense presentations, 15 minute talk to practice for conference talks or thesis proposals, and 5 minute presentation to introduce a new research project.  Each is followed by questions.  Audience members complete feedback forms and provide comments.

All talks take place in MR5 1041 at 2:00p
