Seminars & Lectures

The Virginia Institute for Psychiatric and Behavioral Genetics research seminars are a weekly event that provides faculty, graduate students and post doctoral scholars the opportunity to prevent interesting research topics to the Institute. Occasionally, special guest speakers and other lectures may also be scheduled. The research seminars are held every Thursday during the academic year from 12:00 p.m. to 1:00 p.m. in the VIPBG Conference Room #160 at Biotech One or online in our Zoom Room.

Most research seminars are recorded and available online to VCU eID holders at our Kaltura MediaSpace site.
