Molecular and Developmental Biology Graduate Program

  • Seminar Series

    Every year, the Cincinnati Children's Research Foundation, with the Molecular and Developmental Biology Graduate Program, hosts a weekly seminar series. Noted researchers from across the country come to Cincinnati Children's to talk about a variety of topics within molecular and developmental biology.

    The seminar series is held on Wednesdays from 12 noon to 1 pm in the Research Auditorium, TCHRF 3381.

    For WINTER 2014, the scheduled speakers are as follows.
