Graduate Program Virtual Information Session

Join the University at Buffalo Biological Sciences Department on Tuesday, December 18, 2018, at 3:00 p.m for a graduate programs virtual information session. The webinar will feature two current graduate students, Nicole Wong and Haniam Maria, who will discuss their experiences as students in the program. We will discuss their research and experience within the department, life as a graduate student, and admissions requirements. This is a fantastic opportunity to ask questions of current students in our program, especially as deadlines for the program approach.

SEMINAR SPEAKER

Thursday at 12:00pm, in 14 Knox Hall, North Campus

Dr. Soo-Kyung Lee, Department of Pediatrics at the Vollum Institute, Oregon Health & Science University.

Lecture title: “What does the FOX say? FOXG1 orchestrates cortico-cortical connections”

The goals of Dr. Lee's lab are to understand the gene regulatory mechanisms that govern generation of diverse neural cell-types with specialized function and connection pattern during central nervous system development and to understand how disruption of these processes leads to various neurodevelopmental disorders in humans.
