Connect Science Seminar Series

REMINDER

Please Note: As of April 19, 2021, this series will be held once a week every Tuesday.

The DF/HCC Connect:Science seminar series offers remote participation through Zoom (create an account here) to pull our community of faculty, trainees, and lab staff together during this difficult time and it promotes engagement during these next several weeks. We plan to involve speakers who are leaders in cancer biology, immune oncology and other fields from across the world. This seminar series will be broadcast to researchers around the globe and recorded for subsequent viewing.

The series which began on March 23, and switched to a twice weekly format on July 6, will now be held once a week on Tuesdays as of April 19, 2021. All talks will be begin at 12 PM EST.
