Weekly Seminar Program

Our weekly seminar series features presentations by experts from across Johns Hopkins and other biomedical research institutions, and provides students with a view of current research in the topics across the fields of biochemistry and molecular biology and insight into experimental design and methods.

The seminars are normally held Mondays at noon and are open to the Johns Hopkins community.
