CCSB Biweekly Seminar Series

CCSB Biweekly Seminar Series is to promote interdisciplinary research across PVAMU campus and beyond, hosted by CRI Center for Computational Systems Biology. We alternate between CCSB researchers and external speakers. We meet in CCSB Conference Room (ELEN 231). Dr. Seungchan Kim and Dr. Dumitru Iacobas are the organizers for the seminar series. Please contact them if you have any suggestion, including speakers.

Note: The seminar will be delivered over Zoom to comply with PVAMU and CDC guidelines.
