Seminars

All seminars take place on Thursdays from 4:00 to 5:00 PM in Mendel Science Center 101 and are all are open to the public. We serve coffee, tea, and cookies in the seminar room just prior to the presentation, and we hold a wine and cheese reception after most seminars in Mendel 103 or, occasionally, in Mendel 175.
