The CRBS Student Consortium hosts a biweekly student seminar series with the promise of exciting student talks and mouth-watering pizza!

The seminar series in 2018-19 was a great success and witnessed the attendance and participation of students and professors from across the CRBS. The 2019-2020 series is building on this by delivering exciting research conducted by CRBS students.
