Wednesdays from 12:30 - 1 pm in the Cannon Room (C Building, Room 135)

Every week, graduate students and postdocs present their latest research at our "Pizza Talks" where trainees get their fill of both science and pizza! These talks provide an opportunity for trainees to share their work and latest data, receive feedback, and practice presenting their research.
