| | iBioSeminars--Bringing the world's best biology to you
Just found this site:
Seems to have a lot of basic seminar info for specialized biology fields, like biotechniques, cell bio and medicine; biophysics and chemical bio, drug discovery, etc.
From the website:
| About iBioSeminars and the iBioSeminars Team |
Free, on-demand lectures: Many universities/colleges have limited access to high profile leaders in biological research. Our goal is to add 15-20 seminars per year, of similar quality to outstanding lectures that are currently in this library. Access, through web streaming or download, is completely free-of-charge.
Targeting a broad audience: iBioSeminars start with an extended introduction, making them accessible to non-specialists and students, and then progress to cover current research. Senior scientists and students can view and enjoy these lectures.
Education: iBioSeminars are being used by undergraduate and graduate teachers to augment their classroom material. We have now added an education component to this web site (including lecture notes, questions/answers and short video clips for teaching).
International communication: iBioSeminars have viewers in 115 countries and they are being internally promoted in several countries as an educational tool and scientific resource.
Goodwill: Lecturers generously donate their time to prepare these lectures. The project, largely funded by HHMI, is a grass roots efforts with time invested by several individuals at UCSF, HHMI and ASCB.
iBioSeminars is a project of the American Society for Cell Biology (ASCB), the Howard Hughes Medical Institute (HHMI), and the University of California, San Francisco (UCSF). It receives funding from ASCB, HHMI, the National Centre for Biological Sciences (NCBS) and Strand Life Sciences Pvt. Ltd..
