Biotechnology PhD Training Program



   Monthly BTP Journal Club/Research in Progress sessions promote interdisciplinary exchange.  Meetings are held regularly from 12:00 to 1:00 pm on the second Friday of each month  (plus additional sessions in the Spring) through the academic year. Two BTPer's each present for 20 min on their current science (plus 10 min each discussion). The discussion period is an important element.

    Meetings are open to non-BTP graduate students.  Meetings are in Pinn Hall 7100. For information contact Bryan Berger at [BTP Journal Club Director] or Phillis Hynes at [BTP Program Administrator]).

    Presenters: For help connecting with flat screen, please contact Regina Seitz (; Pinn 7316). *See instructions from Regina at bottom.

*Newer laptops should try to connect wirelessly (preference of flatscreen):

- Macs will use Airplay > use the apple TV (will show up as Pinn 7100) – if it does not work right away try to turn Bluetooth on and try again.  

- Newer PCs should go to display preferences.  Wait if/until the laptop finds the Samsung TV and then mirror to it or extend the screen.  


As a backup, Micro has a new departmental laptop that will connect to the screen if all else fails (needs to be checked out).

Other notes:

Older machines connect using the HDMI cable (Regina has some adapters). Send Regina an email prior to setup.
