The Biology Department proudly announces our annual seminar series. These seminars are associated with our Research Methods course and will occur bi-weekly throughout the fall and spring semesters. The purpose of the series is to invite scientists from around the country to share their newest discoveries and ideas with our students. We cordially invite the entire Armstrong community to attend and we encourage students to engage with our honored guests in post-seminar discussions.
