We host semi-regular open meetings for anyone interested in experiments to workshop a study idea, get feedback on a manuscript, or talk about miscellaneous opportunities related to experiments (e.g., what we can do in the lab, small grant opportunities, etc.). These are an informal, small group setting, so please consider dropping in even if you are at the very beginning stages of a study idea. Open meetings occur about once or twice a month.

Email to join our mailing list to hear about upcoming open meetings, presentations, and other events.
