EBIO Brown Bag Schedule 2014 - 2015

We are now scheduling speakers for the 2014 - 2015 Brown Bag series.  Please scroll down for available dates.

The lunch hour brown bag series offers an opportunity for graduate students, post-docs, research assistants, and faculty in the Ecology and Evolutionary Biology Department to present current research, stories of recent travels to conduct scientific work, or other science related topics. This forum is an excellent opportunity (especially for graduate students) to gain valuable feedback on concepts, methods, statistical analyses, and many other aspects of their work. Brown bag has an informal atmosphere that fosters dynamic discussions and friendly conversation.

When: Wednesdays 12 PM  to 1 PM (Fall and Spring semesters), unless noted with an asterisk.
Where: Ramaley N240.
