Spring 2012 Series

CHD Interdisciplinary Developmental (iDEV) Talks

Day/Time: Fridays, 11am to noon
AP&M 4301

The UCSD Center for Human Development introduces a new colloquium series in spring 2012 for investigators to present recent findings, give practice talks, and/or conduct brainstorming sessions that would be of interest to the developmental community. The goal of the series is to provide a forum for researchers to share what they are currently working on and ultimately to identify possible future collaborative opportunities with others within or outside the group.
