Research in Progress

A monthly talk series emphasizing graduate students, postdoctoral trainees and junior faculty actively working on an antimicrobial resistance project. These talks are intended to be works in progress, yet to be published work with the intention of gathering feedback and new ideas from this forum. Re-launching in January 2022, CHARM Research in Progress are held monthly on Thursdays, in BRF2 4103 from 9am  - 10am.
