CMSR Weekly Seminars

The CMSR conducts weekly seminars every Wednesday from 8:30am - 9:30am in the Class of '62 Auditorium (G-9425) or Adolph Auditorium (1-7619) as indicated on the schedule. Each meeting is moderated by 2-3 trainees who take 20-30 minutes each to present either ‘dirty data’ for discussion of troubleshooting and research direction (Work in Progress) or formal presentations which provide background, hypotheses, experimental strategies, results and conclusions regarding a single project. Each week, there will be a Faculty Evaluator and a Trainee Evaluator assigned to each presenter who will provide constructive criticism to each of the trainees, as well as input on data interpretation and the design of future experiments. These seminars and the resulting exchange of ideas is critical for our trainees to develop into rigorous scientists and prepare them for scientific careers.
