The suspension of in-person conferences owing to the COVID pandemic deprives PIs, postdocs, and graduate students of key opportunities to present their work on the local, national, and international stage. With this webinar series, we hope to provide these opportunities for researchers at all levels with goals of stimulating discussion and enhancing collaboration in the community.
