The Center has developed three of its own seminar series. One of which is the CEHS Friday Forum Seminar Series, comprised of monthly gathering of Center members and their lab group to socialize and hear a scientific presentation that is almost exclusively presented by a Center member (generally by a Junior Faculty member), by a recipient of a CEHS Pilot Project Grant, by a potential candidate for CEHS membership, or by outside speakers whose work is relevant to the goals of the Center. By offering a casual setting, this event fosters important networking. This format has been remarkably effective in promoting collaborative interactions among Center members. Initiated in 2003, Friday Forum has played a critical role in growing and sustaining a robust CEHS community.
