The BIG Works-in-Progress (BIG WiPs) are meant to be a space where trainees can present and seek feedback within the WashU community about ongoing work. Speakers can be postdocs or graduate students AND as of the 2023-2024 series we are also welcoming non-tenure track faculty to present. The audience will include only WashU scientists.
