BEACON Friday Seminars
Every Friday, we hold a seminar at 3:30 pm Eastern/2:30 pm Central/12:30 pm Pacific. Members at all five institutions participate via videoconference. All BEACON members are strongly encouraged to present their BEACON-funded or BEACON-related research and education projects at a Friday seminar!

2016 BEACON Congress
Save the date! The 2016 BEACON Congress will be held August 10-12 at Michigan State University. The graduate student/postdoc retreat day will be August 9. This year there will also be a special celebration on August 13th in honor of Rich Lenski’s 60th birthday that you are welcome to stay for. Many of Rich’s current and former students, postdocs, and collaborators will also be joining us, and some may come early to attend portions of congress.
2015 BEACON Day @ NC A&T
The 2015 BEACON Day at NC A&T will be held November 5-6, at North Carolina A&T State University.
NCA&T will be hosting a BEACON Day in an effort to showcase BEACON to NCA&T researchers and students throughout the university. BEACON Day will allow BEACON researchers to interact with faculty in an effort to develop research collaborations with other BEACON partner institutions. We are expecting to have research faculty from NCA&T’s:
- School of Agriculture & Environmental Sciences
- College of Arts & Sciences
- School of Business & Economics
- School of Education
- College of Engineering
- School of Technology
This is an excellent opportunity to develop collaborations for inter-institutional and cross-disciplinary research projects, and to strengthen pipelines for graduate student recruitment. BEACON Day at NCA&T will be an excellent opportunity for you to enhance your research & graduate programs!!!
