STARS (Scientists Talk About Research for Staff) is a series of special lunch-hour talks for Faculty of Science support staff. To bridge the gap between scientists and those who work behind the scenes to support them, once a month, researchers give an informal talk about their work. The audience includes lab technicians, database managers, administrative assistants, and advisors. A light lunch is served during each talk courtesy of the Dean of Science.
