The Biochemistry and Biophysics department will host the New Student Talks on May 19th to welcome our new students. Students will each give a 10-minute presentation followed by a Q&A session. The 2022 Diane Harris Leadership Award will also be presented to a current student at the event. Please join us to welcome our new students. All department members are invited to attend in person or on Zoom.
