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 another session some months) 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.  The September meeting will be held in the Cell Biology Conference Room (3006 Pinn Hall).  With 3rd floor renovations, subsequent meetings will be in Pinn Hall 7006 on 10.13.17 and in Pinn Hall 7100 thereafter.
