The CRBS Student Consortium hosts a biweekly student seminar series with the promise of exciting student talks.

The seminar series in 2018-19 and 2019-2020 were a great success and witnessed the attendance and participation of students and professors from across the CRBS. The 2020-2021 series is building on this by delivering exciting research conducted by CRBS students.
