The HSCI Technology Series was developed to best serve researchers in their day-to-day experimental work in the lab.  Each session will cover:

  • Which technology worked, and which didn't - in which circumstance.  Even negative results are important to share!
  • The 'nuts and bolts' of the technology - talks will be given by the people who actually performed the work in the lab.

Presentations will be informal, and there will be ample opportunity to ask questions.

This workshop will not be broadcast via WebEx, as originally planned.

Contact Maureen Herrmann for meeting details.

Please feel free to bring a brown bag lunch to this discussion.
