During our group meeting time (Tuesdays 9am-11am),  we hold tutorial sessions on an occasional basis.  These are teaching-style presentations made by group members on various topics related to research projects in our lab.  These tutorials are open to all members of the Crump Institute and other attendees will be considered upon request.
