CBP hosts the Biological Physics Seminar with leading experts in the field of biological and soft matter physics, including biophysics and structural and computational biology. The Graduate Seminar is organized by students and offers graduates a venue for presenting their research to their peers in a friendly environment. CPB also hosts topical workshops.
Each semester we host about ten distinguished physicist from leading laboratories and universities to present their latest research. The area of interest is broadly defined as biological and soft matter physics, including biophysics and structural and computational biology. Speakers cover experimental, computational, and theoretical approaches.
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 Graduate Seminar is organized by students for students. Graduate students and postdocs in CBP take advantage of the seminar series that allows each student to present and refine their research. These seminars are open to faculty members and other interested colleagues. This activity serves two purposes, both broadening the interests of students and giving them the opportunity for oral presentations. And there is free pizza.
