Colloquium

Faculty and students with interests in biology and engineering from across the University gather twice a month during the academic year for a scientific colloquium. Colloquia include talks from graduate students, post-docs, and external speakers from academia and industry.  The goals of these colloquia are to educate Princeton bioengineers about research activities on and off campus, and engage in creative interdisciplinary discussions about recent bioengineering endeavors.

Times and locations of colloquium are provided below and refreshments will be available 15 min before the scheduled time outside the meeting rooms.

The upcoming schedule of talks is:
