The CAPS seminar series is a weekly informational session for members of the CAPS community as well anyone from the greater community who are interested in applied plant sciences. The seminars are a great opportunity to share research and a phenomenal way to connect to the Ohio State scientific community. 

Thursday CAPS Seminars!

Starting in January 2020, the CAPS seminars are moving to

Thursday from 4:00 – 5:00 PM.

For the first time in 7 years, the CAPS seminar series has four major updates:

  • It is moving to a new day and time starting January 2020: Thursdays 4:00 – 5:00 PM.
  • The CAPS seminar is hosted in Columbus (Rightmire) or Wooster (Thorne) with a video link that can be provided to anyone so they can watch remotely.  Please email if you are interested in viewing the live presentation remotely.  Most presentations are recorded and can be accessed on-demand after the presentations.
  • Listening sessions will be hosted on the first Thursday of the month (starting February 6, 2020).  People from the CAPS community can nominate featured guests to get a better understanding to expand connections.  Examples might be from industry or internally here with TCO.
  • There is a break from CAPS seminar over the summer semester. However, if a guest speaker’s best time to present is over the summer, we will have special presentations for those speakers.
