HBC Science Talks
The first annual HBC Science Talks began in the fall of 2002. The Science Talks is a mini-symposium that begins with a Speaker Session, featuring three to four investigators giving presentations of their current research. Past speakers have included Assistant, Associate and Full (including Distinguished) Professors, with most being HBC Investigators but also some invited outside guest speakers.
Immediately following the Speaker Session, The Science Talks continue with an afternoon Poster Session to which all HBC Investigators, their students and research staff are invited, and encouraged to participate, including researchers affiliated with the various core facilities in the biomedical sciences.
