12:00 pm Bridgeside Research Forum @ Bridgeside Point II Building, Room 503

The Bridgeside Research Forum is a seminar given by postdocs and graduate students every Friday from 12-1 pm during the academic year. Most weeks consist of two 30-minute talks, but there will be an occasional hour-long special seminar from an invited guest too.

The goal of this forum is to provide an opportunity for trainees to gain valuable experience presenting their research to a broad scientific community. The topics are diverse each week, so there is sure to be something for everyone. All are welcome to attend and enjoy a free lunch while you are there!

There is a free shuttle to transport people directly from the Hillman Cancer Center to Bridgeside Point II and back. The shuttle will depart Hillman at 11:30 am and then depart Bridgside at 1:15 pm
