MPPB Seminar Series

Throughout the academic year, the MPPB Seminar Series hosts a variety of speakers presenting on topics related to Molecular Pharmacology, Physiology, and Biotechnology. Research in the MPPB department covers a very broad range, including both basic and applied science, and topics such as cell signaling, biomedical engineering, neuroscience, drug and gene delivery, tissue regeneration, structural biology, sensory transduction, physiology and cell biology. Seminars are typically held on Fridays, starting at 12pm, in the Marcuvitz Auditorium (room 220 in Sidney Frank Hall), unless otherwise indicated on this website or the official schedule.
