Thursdays at 12:30 pm in the Cannon Room (C Building, Room 135)

For more than 25 years, the Cell Bio Seminar Series has featured outstanding researchers studying key questions in cell biology and related fields. This series takes place every other week on Thursdays, alternating with a seminar series hosted by our neighboring department, Biological Chemistry and Molecular Pharmacology (BCMP). During their visit, invited researchers meet with faculty, graduate students, postdoctoral fellows. These talks are open to all members of the Harvard research and medical communities, including those based in affiliated hospitals.

For the 2023-2024 academic year, Cell Bio seminars will be in-person only in the C-Building Cannon Room, typically from 12:30 - 1:30 pm on Thursdays. For more information, please contact

For the 2023-2024 academic year, BCMP seminars will be also in-person only in the C-Building Cannon Room, typically from 12:30 - 1:30 pm on Thursdays. For more information, contact:
