Research In Progress (RIP) Seminar Series – Fall 2020

Our RIP series is designed to give up-and-coming biologists a chance to practice their presentation skills in a formal, but friendly environment. RIP speakers consist of both invited speakers and students within the Biology department. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic the RIP series will be held online.  Please contact Robert Driver for details.
