SAVE THE DATE!  Second Fridays of each month, 12:00 noon – 1:00 pm (feel free to bring your lunch!) All sessions will be online via Zoom until further notice.

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!  We hope you enjoyed the 2019-2020 series.  Check back later in the summer for the 2020-2021 schedule!

Watch for Fall Schedule!

Registration is done in succession
