Seattle Worm Meeting

This is a meeting of research groups in Seattle (broadly defined) that use C. elegans (and other worms) as a model system. Meetings are monthly on the THIRD THURSDAY, and will be held either in the UW Health Sciences Building (HSB) J-wing room 412 G wing room 328 (map) or at the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center M1-303/305 (map). Refreshments will be served at 3:30 pm (for real!!), and talks will start at 4:00 pm. 

If you would like to speak at the Seattle Area Worm Meeting, you are in luck! We are accepting applications  from folks working in any Seattle area (broadly defined!) lab that uses C. elegans (or similar) to fill the presentation schedule. This is a great series for graduate students, postdocs, and technicians to present their work!
