Physiology Research Workshop

Spring 2019

Held on Tuesdays
Noon-1:00 PM, Biomed 1, Room 205-207

This Research Workshop provides a forum for students and post-doctoral fellows to practice their presentation skills as well as obtain feedback on their research projects from other trainees and faculty. In addition, the Workshop also provides an opportunity for faculty to present ideas and get feedback for upcoming grant submissions.

All Physiology Ph.D. Program students and IBS Ph.D. Program Students affiliated with Physiology/Biophysics faculty and who have passed their candidacy exam are required to present their research annually (one per academic year). Postdoctoral fellows who are conducting full-time research with Departmental faculty are also required to present in the Research Workshop. Faculty who wish to present can schedule for an open date.
