Seminar Series

EEB hosts a weekly seminar series during the academic year. EEB members nominate individuals to the Seminar Committee, who invites speakers from around the world to share their research. Each semester, EEB also invites 1-2 alumni who work outside of academia to talk about their career paths with students. Students can be nominated to serve as the Distinguished Student Speaker to present their dissertation research during the semester that they graduate.
