Biomolecular Medicine Works in Progress

In our weekly sessions, graduate students at NYU Langone’s Skirball Institute of Biomolecular Medicine discuss their research with fellow students and faculty, gaining experience in the art of presentation and receiving valuable feedback about their work in progress.

Participating programs include developmental genetics and stem cell biology, genome integrity, molecular biophysics, and immunology. Our students are also welcome to attend the Neuroscience Institute’s Joint Neuroscience Colloquia.

Developmental Genetics and Stem Cell Biology Works in Progress

Trainees in our Developmental Genetics and Stem Cell Biology PhD Training Programs present their work every Thursday at 10:30AM in the Skirball Institute’s fourth floor seminar room.

Attendance is typically restricted to members of the training programs. If you are not a member but would like to attend, email Julia Gelman, PhD, assistant director of training programs, at julia.gelman@nyulangone.org.

If you are scheduled to present and need to cancel, it is your responsibility to find a replacement and to email Dr. Gelman to confirm the change.
