The WashU School of Medicine’s Office of Diversity, Equity, & Inclusion, in partnership with Julianne Moore from DBBS, invites all undergraduates and postbacs conducting research at WashU over the summer to attend their Summer Science Seminar Series–created specifically for undergraduates interested in research, graduate school, medical school, or the MD-PhD pathway.

Three of the seminars will focus on scientific research. For each of these seminars (June 7, 14, and 28), three faculty members will give short, 15-minute, big-picture talks about their research. June 21 will comprise a career panel, at which three scientists will give personal reflections about their career path. The series will wrap up with talks on what to expect and how to succeed along the MD/MD-PhD (July 12) and the PhD paths (July 19).
