The UCLA Undergraduate Computational and Systems Biology Seminar Series is aimed at supporting undergraduates in the Computational and Systems Biology Program by exposing students to professionals in the field. The series aims to support the professional interests of the students in the program by hosting speakers from the quantitative biology industries as well as academia. By hosting a diverse group of speakers, we hope to help students better understand and explore career paths available to them.
