Biophysics Seminar

The biophysics seminar is a concerted effort between The Ohio State University's Department of Physics and the Biophysics graduate program. Speakers at Biophysics seminars consist of an external guest speaker, current Biophysics students, or Ohio State faculty members.

Current Biophysics pre-candidacy students should register for the seminar course offered through the Department of Physics. Post-candidacy Biophysics students are required to attend but not to register for the course. For all Biophysics students, student presentations within small groups to enhance student presentation skills and provide open discussion are considered components of the seminar. Additional course information is available online at:

Seminar Class:Physics 7891
