Seminar Schedule

Our Seminars cover a broad range of topics from various fields of Biology. We hope to open back up to the public, but at this time space is limited due to Covid protocols. We ask for patience as we limit our seminars to those affiliated with UNCG. Please check back in to see if we are able to invite the public to join us. Thank you!

Held Wednesdays from 4-5 PM in Sullivan 201

 Affiliates may contact Bryan McLean for information (b_mclean@uncg.edu).
