Cell Biology In-House Student & Postdoc Seminars

In House Seminar Series:

Our In House seminar is held every Monday at 12:00 pm in 147 Nanaline Duke Building. It is an opportunity for one postdoctoral fellow and one student to speak for 20 minutes about their ongoing research. It is organized by senior students and postdocs in the Department and is well attended by primary and secondary faculty. This is an excellent forum to highlight new research directions as well as obtain feedback on the science and presentation skills. Speakers receive written feedback from faculty using an evaluation form. Questions? Contact Suzette Billings at suzette.billings@duke.edu.
