The goal is for everyone to learn something from the talks and discussions, to catch the excitement of the questions, promise of the approaches, etc.

Chalk Talks bring the CBI community together on a monthly basis to discuss ongoing research in CBI laboratories. Each meeting provides the opportunity for two research groups to present their work. Chalk Talks are normally structured so that research groups from different home departments present in the same session. The goal is to engage members from all of the CBI affilliated departments in order to convey the key problems and approaches encountered by each research group to the wider research community at the chemistry-biology interface.

Chalk Talk Press Release:
Presenting students submit a "Press Release" one week before the Talk (≤ 150 words + figure) that explains what's exciting about your project, written for non-specialists (eg level of Scientific American or NY Times science section). Get people interested and primed for your talk! Get some feedback from your peers and advisor to help you make your Press Release cool!

Chalk Talk awards:
Every year we will award presenting students with the CBI Award in Scientific Communication from that year's Chalk Talk series (1 for Press Release, 1 for Chalk Talk).
