Funded by National Cancer
Institute
as part of a research program organized by Nutritional Science Group of the Division of Cancer Prevention


CNGI Seminar program

The CNGI-sponsored seminars will be held in Room 170 in the Bevill Research Building on the 3rd Monday of the month at 11 am (CDT). The seminar will be broadcast interactively over the internet to our collaborating institutions. In some cases, the seminar will be held at the collaborating institution and viewed in Room 170, Bevill Research Building. PDF versions of the Powerpoint slides will be available on the CNGI website. According to the wishes of the speaker, individual slides may be deleted or placed in a password-protected site.
