Schedule for Cambiowebiar Series 2015

Cambiowebinars is a project that broadcasts live biology seminars to remote audiences in universities in Puerto Rico and individuals via livestream. The speakers  from the University of Cambridge in UK  volunteer their time to disseminate their science. The topics are diverse but  focus on recent discoveries or technology.

Each seminar has a designated contact in Puerto Rico that organizes the audience in a variety of local universities. In the past we have been able to reach audiences in UPRM and RCM-UPR. The seminars are open to the public but crafted specially to researchers, graduate and undergraduate students.

The seminar series for this semester includes:
