Biological Sciences


The Department of Biological Sciences hosts a series of weekly seminars each spring and fall semester in association with its colloquium courses for undergraduates (BIOL 492 and 492M) and graduate students (BIOL 592). Seminar speakers are usually invited from other universities and research institutions but occasionally the program will include faculty of the Department of Biological Sciences or other units at SIUE. Talks cover a wide range of topics in biology.

Seminars are usually held in the Science East building in lecture room 3126 (SE 3126) and take place on Mondays from 3:00-4:00 PM.  

All are welcome.
