The department of Plant Pathology holds regular seminars, discussing many topics of interest to those inside and outside the major. These are seperated into two forms: Seminars and the “Friday @ 4” program. Seminars provide a formal method for students, faculty, and guests to share information on their research, and provides a platform for the presentation and defense of findings. Friday @ 4 provides a more casual environment for labs and staff to come together at the end of the week and share findings among the members of the department.
