ECSS Seminar Series 2014-2015

Some of our regular events are the ECSS Seminar Series, held in room 141 at 717 Potter Street. These seminars, as well as other ECSS events, are listed on the Life Sciences Division Events Calendar.

Monthly ECSS research seminars, held on the first Wednesday of each month from noon to 1 p.m., showcase the ongoing work of graduate students and post doctorate researchers who volunteer to talk. This is an excellent opportunity to practice public speaking in a casual environment, and gain helpful advice from other researchers at Berkeley Lab.

The seminar series is also home to company-sponsored technical seminars, in which biotech companies come to present a diverse portfolio of new technologies and products that they offer. These technical seminars, held on the third Wednesday of each month from noon to 1 p.m., double as a forum to discuss experimental approaches and strategies.

If you are interested in presenting, or if you have speaker suggestions, please contact Rosalyn Sayaman.
