Graduate Studies Seminars
Graduate studies seminars are held regularly on Thursdays at noon.
Grand Rounds are generally held the third Thursday of the month (except for March.) Specific titles/topics are announced in a weekly departmental email.
All sessions will be held virtually via MS Teams for the 2020-2021 academic year.
If you have questions, or would like to be added to the email list to receive the MS Teams link, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org
