How-to Talks by Postdocs is a series of instructional brown-bag lunch talks for the general VCU health sciences community taught by postdocs. These are not seminar talks, but an opportunity for postdocs to share how to do something related to the health sciences. How-to Talks by Postdocs is sponsored by the Tompkins-McCaw Library for the Health Sciences (VCU Libraries), the C. Kenneth and Dianne Wright Center for Clinical and Translational Research, and the VCU Postdoctoral Association.
