Research Seminar Program at CHORI
As part of our commitment to education, CHORI established the Weekly Seminars, an opportunity for educational enrichment for CHORIís principal investigators, the scientific community, and the public at large.

Seminars are held in CHORIís charming "Little Theatre," which has been restored to its original state, circa 1923, and provides an historic setting with state-of-the-art digital equipment for national and international leaders in all areas of scientific research to present their newest ideas and explorations.

Free and open to the public, the Seminars occur every Tuesday in the
Little Theatre in Room 2319 at 12:00pm unless otherwise noted.
