The Topics in Bioengineering (TIB) seminar series, sponsored by the Harvard School of Engineering and Applied Sciences (SEAS), will kick off on Jan. 18.

The talks are open to anyone interested in bioengineering research, including undergraduates, graduate students, postdoctoral fellows, and faculty.

TIB lectures will be held on Tuesdays from noon to 1 p.m.; lunch will be provided for all attendees. The permanent room for this semester is still to be determined. All of the talks will be held in Cambridge.
