CVG Stories

The CVG Stories series provides a forum for CVG trainees to meet informally (via zoom) with a CVG faculty member and hear about their journey into science. It is an opportunity to learn about our faculty members' experiences and growth as people, scientists and leaders on campus. The goals are to promote meaningful interactions between faculty and trainees in our community and enhance networking and career development.

CVG Stories are planned and organized by the CVG Trainee Executive Committee (TEC). These events typically include a shared community meal, distributed safely to take home during COVID-19. The zoom links are shared via the Verge-L email list and CVG slack. For more information, please contact TEC or Charlotte Williams.
