Seminars & Symposia

The UPEH’s public and for-credit seminar series is held weekly on Fridays during the academic year at 12:00 p.m. (12:00 – 1:30 p.m.). They are generally held in Environment Hall.

For graduate students, the purpose of this seminar is two-fold: it exposes the trainees to the latest cutting edge research presented by faculty of the Program as well as scientists from the Research Triangle area and nation-wide. It also provides a forum in which the trainees hone their presentation skills.

Seminars are always open to the public and are well-attended by our colleagues located in the Research Triangle Park and other nearby academic institutions such as UNC Chapel Hill, North Carolina Central University, and North Carolina State University.

For more information about UPEH Seminars & Symposia, contact Dr. Joel Meyer or Sarah Phillips.
