ECSS Seminar Series 2014-2015

The ECSS Seminar Series is one of our popular and well attended events, held in the Gray auditorium at 717 Potter Street.  These seminars, as well as other ECSS events, are listed on the Life Sciences Division Events Calendar.

The monthly 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.  For speakers, this is an excellent opportunity to practice public speaking in a casual environment, and gain helpful advice from other researchers at Berkeley Lab. Speakers for the upcoming year volunteer to speak and receive (optional) oral and written feedback on their talk. In addition, attendees select the best presentation of each 6-month period, and the selected speaker receives an award in recognition of the quality of his/her talk.

The seminar series is also home to company-sponsored technical seminars, at which biotech companies present a diverse portfolio of cutting edge technologies and products. These technical seminars, held on the third Wednesday of each month from noon to 1 p.m., also serve as a forum to trouble shoot experimental approaches and strategies.

If you are interested in presenting or if you have suggestions for speakers or technical seminar topics, please contact Claire Robertson (email).
