CME-Wide Lab Meetings

Our BII-MCE lab meetings focus on presentations of current research from all laboratories across the BII-MCE. These sessions allow for cross-lab interactions about various research projects that foster opportunities for collaborations and mentoring. These meetings also hold space for our professional development seminars, which directly contribute to the career development of graduate students, postdocs, and other research staff.

These lab meetings are open to collaborators and others interested in evolutionary cell biology. If you would like to join the mailing list for journal club, please contact Josh Hoskinson at [email protected]
