All GGS students attend the Department of Genetics seminars, which occur Fridays at noon from September through May of the academic year. These seminars cover a wide range of topics, including genetic analyses of simple and complex diseases, state-of-the-art genomic analyses, and many other topics. Many of our seminar speakers come from other outside universities or laboratories and regularly meet with the GGS students to talk about both their research and their scientific training experiences. See the current Department of Genetics seminar schedule.
UAB also offers many other regular seminar series, which are sponsored by the different departments in the medical school or by UAB centers. GGS students are welcome to attend these in addition to the Department of Genetics seminars. See the current Joint Health Sciences departments/organizations seminar schedules.
