The “CBI Student Lunch Seminar” (Chem 791), which is offered every spring semester, brings the diverse CBI students together to exchange ideas and expertise that enhance their progress in their research careers. The course is organized and run by the students. In recent years the students have chosen a format in which they each give an informal mini-talk on a research technique that is within their expertise and is of interest to the group. CBI students are required to take this seminar twice.
