Fall seminar series scheduled

Valdosta State University's Biology, Chemistry, and Geosciences departments are sponsoring a fall seminar series featuring guest professors lecturing on many topics.

?We hope this seminar series will provide opportunities for faculty and students alike to be exposed to current research developments as well as to make valuable, off campus, professional connections among colleagues in their respective disciplines,? said Dr. John Elder, associate professor of biology.

The following lectures are open to public free of charge:
