Research technologies Seminar serieS

The Research Technologies Seminar Series, established in Fall 2023, is designed to highlight core facility infrastructure and services to increase the visibility of these important resources on campus. The seminar series provides attendees the opportunity to learn how to incorporate instrumentation and services into their research programs, and also learn about the innovative research supported by our facilities. The seminars are regularly held on Thursdays from 1-2 p.m. Please contact Colleen Sunderland if you have any questions.
