Fall 2023 Seminar Series

Georgia Southern University’s Department of Biology hosts a weekly seminar series. The purpose of this series is to enable biologists from around the country to share their newest discoveries and ideas with our students, and we encourage students to engage with our honored guests in post-seminar discussions. Unless otherwise noted, seminars will be held on Mondays at 11:15 a.m., at either the Statesboro and Armstrong campuses. Seminars also will be live-streamed via Zoom. Scroll down past the schedule for instructions for joining a Zoom-based seminar.
