Cell and Molecular Biology Student Symposium
Duke Cell and Molecular Biology (CMB) Program is pleased to host the second annual Cell and Molecular Biology Student Symposium on November 21, 2019 at the Great Hall Trent Semans Center, Duke University. In this student-driven initiative, we will be showcasing the exciting and diverse research that CMB trainees and CMB-affliated laboratories are involved in.
The theme for this year’s symposium is “Cells in Action”. This meeting will assemble experts in the field, together with Duke CMB faculty, postdoctoral fellows and graduate students to discuss the mechanisms of cell migration and its implication in development and disease across different model organisms. To encompass the depth and breadth of this research, symposium themes include cell migration in development, metastasis, and immune response. Additionally, the symposium will include an imaging showcase. For more information: Cells in Action
Thursday Seminar Series
All CMB students participate in the CMB seminar course, CMB 764. This course features an hour-long session in which one advanced student presents his or her research and another advanced student presents an introduction to the upcoming speaker in the "Thursday Series". The second hour-long session is the seminar itself, presented by a distinguished visiting scientist (and open to the entire Duke community). These seminars are held each Thursday from 12:30-1:30pm in room 147, Nanaline Duke Building. For more information: Thursday Series
Duke University and the School of Medicine is committed to supporting state-of-the-art shared core facilities that are can be used by all Duke researchers. These cores are physically housed and administered by various departments, institutes, and centers. Examples include Biostatistics and Computational Biology; Sequencing and Genomic Technologies; Flow Cytometry; Light Microscopy; Proteomics and Metabolomics, Biochemical Analysis and Chemical Synthesis Core; and the Microscopy and Imaging Core.
