About the Future Leaders in Mechanobiology Seminar Series

Launched in May 2021, the Future Leaders in Mechanobiology is a monthly seminar series featuring the strongest and most diverse PhD students and postdocs in mechanobiology. By providing an international stage to share one’s work and opportunities to interact with researchers at all career stages, we aim to create an inclusive and valuable series for early-stage researchers and the mechanobiology community as a whole.

Future Leaders in Mechanobiology will meet via Zoom on the second Wednesday of the month, at 11am ET (8am PT, 10am CT), and all are welcome to attend. Recordings of past talks and the future schedule can be found below.
