This monthly forum brings together researchers from biological, physical and engineering backgrounds to present and discuss their research. Our focus is on research in progress talks, giving opportunities for graduate students and post-docs to present.

Meeting times: SDG will meet noon - 1pm (with lunch served at 11:45 am).

Location: Bass Center 305 (266 Whitney Ave.).

If you would like to be added to our mailing list or present your research, please contact the organizers for 2016-2017:
