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:
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
