Every week, on wednesday at 12 noon, each member of the DCB presents its progress on current research projects. And once in a while, external speakers are also invited.

If you are interested in DCB research topics and wish to attend those seminars, feel free to join us in Lipari room (1st floor) or to contact any of the principal investigators to get more details.
