Our department is a broad-based Biology Department with strengths in areas as diverse as model systems genetics, cytoskeletal cell biology, physiology, evolutionary mechanisms, and community ecology.

Faculty, postdocs, grad students and some undergraduate researchers from diverse areas of Biology attend seminars, so we look for people who can speak to diverse groups, which is in part why you were selected. As you may know, there is a particularly active group of ____________ researchers here at UNC that would love to hear you speak, including ______, ______, and ______. In addition, faculty and students from nearby Duke University and NC State University often attend our seminars.

We would of course cover all of the costs of your visit, and we would be happy to make arrangements for you to meet anyone you like in the area during your visit.
Thanks for your time, and I look forward to hearing from you.
