The CMB Program holds a weekly seminar for students to present their current dissertation research to the UVM community. All students are expected to attend and participate in seminars while in the CMB Program. Second year students and beyond will present an annual formal seminar that describes their research, including background, methods, results, and discussion. CMB faculty and students will submit seminar evaluations virtually through Google Forms.

These evaluations will be shared with each student speaker in an effort to improve their presentation skills.

Our seminars are open to all in the University community. If you would like to be included on our weekly seminar announcement email distribution list, please email us.

2021-2022 Seminar Schedule

Tuesdays, 11:30am - 12:30pm, Zoom
