HBC Science Talks 2016 – Great Success

This year’s HBC Science Talks meeting held on February 19, 2016 was a great success and was attended by over seventy people.  The four guest speakers, Josie Chandler, Mario Rivera, Joanna Slusky, and Jeff Staudinger, all gave very informative and interesting lectures.  We thank them for sharing their time and expertise with their remarkable presentations.  

Thirty four posters covering six thematic research areas as well as the “enabling technologies” area were presented during the poster session immediately following the speakers session.  We are grateful to all who participated in sharing their research.  All speakers’ and posters’ abstracts, as well as some pictures of the event can be found on the HBC website at http://hbc.ku.edu/science-talks.
