Research In Progress (RIP) Seminar Series

Our RIP series is designed to give up-and-coming biologists a chance to practice their presentation skills in a formal, but friendly environment. RIP speakers are primarily invited speakers from the surrounding area as well as our Masters students preparing to defend their thesis. We try to cater to a variety of interests throughout the semester, although some semesters we are more one-dimensional than others.

This year we have initiated a new mini workshop series focused on providing graduate students the tools that they need to succeed in science, no matter where they may end up after graduating. We are very excited about this workshop series and we feel that they will be beneficial to all attendees. We hope to see many ECU biology students for these, and welcome others who wish to better themselves as scientists.

Hope to see you all on Mondays at noon this semester!

Seminars are held in room N106 in the Howell Science Complex.
