BioFrontiers Seminar Series | Department of Biological Sciences

BioFrontiers Seminar Series

The University of North Texas-Department of Biological Sciences is dedicated to presenting students with the latest and most cutting-edge research being conducted locally and around the world. To that end, scientists are invited, every semester, to come and present their research to the student body and community. Beginning the 2nd Friday (after the semester starts) and continuing until the last Friday before finals. We invite you to come and experience the excitement of Tier 1 Research at its finest.
