Tech Talk Seminar Series

The Office of Research sponsors a seminar series that features research that uses UNMC Core Facility Technologies.

The “Tech Talks” series takes place in DRC1 1006 from 1- 2 PM on the 2nd Tuesday every other month (January, March, May, July, September, November).

The speakers are Core Scientists, Principal Investigators, Instrument Tech Reps and occasionally outside researchers. The purpose of the series is to highlight the variety of ways core technologies can be applied to research questions, with a special emphasis on technology new to UNMC.

Upcoming Seminars
