The Monday Seminar Series is presented every Monday at noon during the academic year in the auditorium at 711 Washington Street, Boston, 02111.
Each week a prominent scientist presents their latest research focused on nutrition and aging. The Monday Seminar series, open to the public, is designed to bring together faculty and students from the Tufts Health Sciences campus with others in the greater Boston biomedical research community, including scientists, clinical researchers and nutrition practitioners.
When available, links to the presentations are provided. Please share any suggestions for future speakers here.
