Postbac Seminar Series: December 12, 2017

Series: Science Skills; Speaking

Dec 12, 2017

This event is recommended for: Postbacs.

Science isn't complete until the results have been shared with others, and talking about your results is one of the important ways of making them public. The Postbac Seminar Series provides a unique opportunity for two Postbacs each month to present their research to a diverse audience of their peers.  The atmosphere is relatively informal and non-threatening.  The series allows Postbacs who attend to learn about the different types of biomedical research being conducted at the NIH while meeting other postbacs.  Read more about the seminar series.

  • María José Luna, CC, HEALS: A Novel Psychometric for Psycho-Social-Spiritual Healing
  • Nicole Carrabba, NCI, Examining the Genetic Components and Mechanisms of Resistance in Aggressive Primary Prostate Cancer
