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. This semester, we will use a hybrid format, between in-person meet and virtual meet (Zoom) based on speaker's preference. When we meet in person, we will meet in CCSB Conference Room (ELEN 231). Dr. Seungchan Kim is the organizer for the seminar series. Please contact him if you have any suggestion, including speakers.
