Work-in-Progress Series

To foster cross-disciplinary conversations about ongoing GEM research, the Community hosts monthly Work-in-Progress talks.  During the Spring semester of 2018, these talks will take place at the new Jacobs School of Medicine and Biomedical Sciences, located on UB's Downtown Campus.

We are seeking speakers for this series. Contact coe-gem@buffalo.edu to present your work.
