Seminar: Gimme the G.I.S.T (General Interest Seminar & Talks) | November 16 at 4:30PM in CBH 220

Graduate Student Association would like to invite you to “Gimme the G.I.S.T”. Gimme the G.I.S.T, formerly known as GSBS Wide-WIPs is a platform for GSBS students, post-docs, faculty and staff to interact and promote awareness in different research areas. The purpose of the GIST is to 1) promote awareness of the variety of research conducted by students and postdoctoral fellows, 2) showcase novel/innovative/state-of-the-art techniques and methodologies used on our campus, and 3) promote a culture of fellowship and support, or good citizenship. This opportunity provides students the experience of presenting their science to an audience that is “science savvy” without being content experts. It also allows for awareness of scientific capabilities to foster further dialog and potential collaborations.

The seminar will be held on November 16th at 4:30 PM in CBH 220. The session will host two presenters, wherein each presenter will give a 15-20 min presentation followed by 5-10 min Q&A. (See attached Flyer via link) We are proud to host-

Timothy Van Treuren, PhD Student, Department of Microbiology, Immunology & Genetics
‘A simple and cost-effective method for knocking out genes in vitro using CRISPR: Everything you need to know to be successful.’


Dr. Gef Farmer, Post-Doc, Department of Physiology & Anatomy
‘Development and Use of “Sniffer Cells” to Detect the Presence of Neuropeptides’

Food provided for the first 50 attendees. This event is hosted by the Graduate Student Association and sponsored by the Graduate School of Biomedical Sciences.
