All the CMBS Program students participate in a research seminar series. In this series, which is held biweekly, two students present their own research to the other students in the program. Attendance for the CMBS Program students is mandatory and a light meal is provided. Faculty mentors attend as well. All the students in their fourth year and beyond are scheduled to speak during the year. This seminar serves a number of purposes: it gives the students in the program an idea about the projects that their fellow students are working on and it also gives the students an opportunity to practice a talk on their work before a critical, but friendly audience of their peers, before they have to give this talk either for their defense or when they apply for a post-doctoral position.
