Sponsored by department(s) : Pharmacology
Event Date : February 14, 2019
Start Time : 09:30 am
Time Duration: 60 minutes
Location : PINN 1-17
Description: Hosted by Thurl Harris, Amy K. Walker, PhD, is an Associate Professor of Molecular Medicine, University of Massachusetts Medical School, Worcester, MA
