Cell and Developmental Biology Early Career Inclusive Excellence Seminar Series

The Cell and Developmental Biology Early Career Inclusive Excellence Seminar Series will launch in Fall 2021. The goal of this seminar series is to promote diversity and inclusion in our scientific community. Postdoctoral fellows studying any aspect of cell and developmental biology are welcome to apply; applications from members of historically underrepresented groups are particularly encouraged. Approved applicants will be contacted to schedule a visit to the university (in person or virtually). During the visit, the speakers will have the opportunity to present their research during the department's seminar series and to meet with faculty, postdocs, and students. The department will cover travel expenses and lodging (if visiting in person) and provide an honorarium to the speaker. The application deadline to be considered for a Fall 2021 seminar is July 16th, 2021. Apply to be a speaker.

For additional questions, please contact Laura Martin, departmental office administrator, at lmmartin@illinois.edu, or Xin Li, CDB seminar committee chair and assistant professor, at lixin@illinois.edu.
