This event is free and open to the public.
This annual flagship event showcases the groundbreaking research being done in CEHG’s 40+ member labs. It will feature keynote speakers Dr. Barbara Koenig (UCSF), Dr. Rasmus Nielsen (UC Berkeley), and Dr. Theodore Porter (UCLA), guest faculty speakers from Stanford and the Bay Area, and CEHG trainee/fellow speakers. In the case of rain, our poster session will be held in Munger Building 5 (across the courtyard from Paul Brest Hall). Register here by Monday, February 18, 2019!
