Department of Cell Biology and Anatomy
2017 Fall Seminar Series

The Department of Cell Biology and Anatomy Seminar Series invites speakers from the broad scientific community in New Orleans and from throughout the world. Although our series emphasizes Developmental Biology and Cell Biology, our departmental strengths, it also has historically included speakers from a wide variety of disciplines and has historically included world-renown scientists who specialize in Anatomy Education. If you are interested in speaking to our group, please contact our seminar coordinator, Dr. Emma Schachner at eschac@lsuhsc.edu.
