Monthly Seminars

This monthly forum involves informal research presentations by junior and senior members of the RBC. It is an essential avenue for sharing information on research techniques and ongoing projects in participating laboratories.  Seminars are held on the last Monday of the month from 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm in room E228 Beadle Center, unless otherwise noted.  For our UNMC faculty members and their labs seminars will be available to stream live on-line at the time mentioned above.
