Connect Science Seminar Series

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, has switched to a twice weekly format as of July 6, and will now be held every Tuesday and Thursday. All talks will be begin at 12 PM EST.
