CMSR Weekly Seminars
The CMSR conducts weekly seminars every Wednesday from 8:30am to 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 two to three 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 that provide background, hypotheses, experimental strategies, results, and conclusions regarding a single project. On a rotating basis, a Faculty Evaluator and a Trainee Evaluator are assigned to each presenter to 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 are critical for our trainees to develop into rigorous scientists and prepare them for scientific careers.
