SAVE THE DATE!  Second Fridays of each month, 12:00 noon – 1:00 pm (feel free to bring your lunch!) All sessions in room C1-17 unless otherwise noted

The “Learn – Discover – Lead” seminar series is designed to provide practical advice for PhD and dual degree scientists, who will be managing and leading research teams of their own.  The target audience is graduate students, combined degree students, postdoctoral research trainees, and junior faculty, but everyone who may benefit from these seminars is welcome to attend!

All registrations are done in myTraining (click on the date to register) – If you attend all sessions in the semester, you are eligible to receive a certificate of completion for the semester. Only interested in one of these? That is fine too!
