Interdisciplinary Research Workshop Series

The Interdisciplinary Research Workshop Series was designed as an opportunity to explore the research overlaps that occur across traditional division lines and to encourage an interdisciplinary approach to future research projects. These workshops are informal, with two 15 minute presentations followed by a half hour, open-forum brainstorming session.

The Interdisciplinary Research Workshop Series is held on the last Wednesday of each month, from 4-5pm in the Warwick-Evans Room on the first floor of Building D, unless otherwise noted. They will resume in September, 2005.

Scientists from all disciplines are invited to attend.
