Center for Infectious Diseases Seminar Series

A seminar series will be hosted by a Center for Infectious Diseases faculty member's laboratory on a Friday from 2: 30-3:30 pm  in the Life Sciences Building room 038 near the beginning of each month. Each month a postdoctoral fellow or senior graduate student will have responsibility for presenting. Following the seminar, a happy hour hosted by the lab in the CID conference room is optional.
