Seminars on the Berkeley Campus
Every week numerous seminars on campus make it a challenge to keep abreast of events. While some of these are oriented to the public, most are research seminars that are geared to graduate students, postdocs, faculty, and visiting researchers. However, undergraduates and interested public are welcome to attend.
In the biological sciences, seminars are offered through several departments including Integrative Biology and Environmental Science Policy, and Management. In addition, research units such as the MVZ offer their own seminar series (see below).
The following seminars are held during the academic semester. Enter through the MVZ's main office, 3101 Valley Life Sciences Building. The library is located in the rear of the Museum on the north side.
A graduate-level seminar series based on current and recent vertebrate research. Graduate students, professors, staff and visiting researchers present on current and past research projects.
