The Frontiers in Interdisciplinary Biosciences seminar series is an introduction to cutting-edge research involving interdisciplinary approaches to bioscience and biotechnology, intended for both specialists and non-specialists, organized and sponsored by Stanford Bio-X.

Three seminars each quarter address a broad set of scientific and technical themes related to interdisciplinary approaches to important issues in bioengineering, medicine, and the chemical, physical and biological sciences.
