MPC Workshop

The MPC Workshop series provides a rich set of professional development opportunities for all members, but especially for students and trainees.   Students and trainees are often encouraged to present their research and expertise to showcase the important work being done at the MPC.  The flexible and casual setting of the MPC Workshop is designed to support all participants. Workshops are hybrid (with an in-person and Zoom option), and occur on Fridays from 12:15pm-1:15pm during the academic year. 

Please contact mpc@umn.edu with any questions.
