Chalk Talks

The Biophysics Chalk Talk is a multidisciplinary series reflecting a broad range of topics typically offered in the Biological Physics Seminars. By contrast to the Biological Physics Seminars, the presentation is accomplished with chalk at hand. This setting provides a step-by-step simplified exposition of one’s work that is more focused on the logic of the science presented rather than on results as would be the case in traditional seminars. The Biophysics Chalk Talk is organized by the Center for Biological Physics. 

If you have any questions regarding the Chalk Talks please contact:

(Note that if you have not used the ASU mailing list server before, you will first need to "get a new LISTSERV password", i.e., create a LISTSERV account, which is different from, e.g., your ASU account. Following the maroon subscribe button will offer you an opportunity to do so.)

Seminars are held on the first and third Tuesdays during the semester, from 1:30 - 2:30 pm in the CBP Seminar Room (PSF 372). Please check the schedule below for talks.

Everybody is welcome. The setting is informal and discussions are encouraged.
