EEB’s plant lunch schedule

Every Friday during the academic years, plant aficionados from EEB gathering for informal discussion on diverse aspects of plant biology. We meet at 12.20 PM and for ± one hour. This fall 2022 semester the gathering will be in person again (pending shifts in the covid situation) with the option to join virtually.

We are inviting speakers from within EEB, UCONN and across the continent to share a 15 minutes talk and participate in a Q&A session.

If you would like to be on the mailing list e-mail Bernard Goffinet
