News & Events

The UWAB Program often shares exciting news and updates about our astrobiology research and education efforts as well as news from the larger astrobiology community. Similarly, we host multiple events over the course of the year ranging in size and topic. 
 
One way to stay connected is by following our newsletter, which features department news, special events, and research done by UWAB students:
