The CU-Prime talk series give students and members of the broader community the opportunity to hear about the life of a grad student and learn about current research in STEM in a jargon-free way.
In the Spring 2022 semester, talks will be on Wednesdays at 5:00–6:00 pm Mountain Time. Unless otherwise noted, all talks will be held at CU in the Duane Commons Room (F1117) on the 11th floor of the Gamow Tower, and free pizza will be available to all attendees! Each talk will also be streamed on CU-Prime's YouTube channel in case you are not able to come in-person (links will be posted here).
