Short Talks

We will have 10 Short Talks by a student or postdoc from one of the Biophysics faculty groups that had a student on the training grant over the past five years. There will be 2 short talk awards given out at the end of the program. Awardees must be present at the end to receive their award.

Format: 12 min talk + 3 min Q&A
