Core Unit Seminar Series


The Core Unit seminar series exists to provide information and education on topics related to the HNRCA’s Core Unit services and methodology that support the research within the HNRCA. The seminars include presentations from HNRCA Core Unit staff, members of Tufts University and outside researchers and collaborators. The seminars are held during Fall and Spring semesters  in the HNRCA Mezzanine Conference Room. Please contact Cheryl Gilhooly for further information.
