Work-in-Progress Series

To foster cross-disciplinary conversations about ongoing GEM-related research, the GEM Community hosts monthly Work-in-Progress talks. These informal science talks take place at the Jacobs School of Medicine and Biomedical Sciences, located on UB's Downtown Campus. 

We are now seeking UB faculty and student speakers for the 2023-2024 Work-in-Progress series! Contact Sara Thomas at msthomas@buffalo.edu to present your work.
