The MLS series is the joint seminar series of MCDB program and the Ohio State Biochemistry Program (OSBP). Travel arrangements are made by Dorian Johnson (614-292-2804), who can be reached at mlsseminar@osu.edu. Schedules are coordinated by the host.  Contact the chair of the MLS Seminar Committee, Guramrit Singh (singh.734@osu.edu), with speaker suggestions and policy questions.  Nominations of Nobel laureates, NAS members, and HHMI investigators are typically approved without further documentation.  Nominations of other speakers doing cutting edge research of broad appeal should include a short justification and CV or similar website link.  We strongly encourage nominations of emerging young investigators, women, and under-represented minorities. We also encourage nominations from MCDB and OSBP graduate students.
