Early Career Seminar Series

Our new seminar series gives a platform to early career mechanochemical cell biologists to explain their science and then discuss with CMCB members. If we think you would be a good fit, we will support you in early career fellowship applications and in other ways.

We'd like to hear from you if you think your science fits with our vision and you are interested in making such an application with our support. Please contact a CMCB PI informally or talk to Darius Koester who is organising this series.
