UW Medicine Faculty Present the Leading Edge of Research

Since its launch in 1976, the Science in Medicine Lecture Series has recognized the School of Medicine faculty research achievements and provided an opportunity for researchers to explore topics outside of their immediate fields.

Lectures are organized into the four categories described below. Speakers are nominated by members of the School of Medicine scientific community and final selection is determined by a committee of peers from the Council on Research and Graduate Education (CORGE).

The Lecture Series

Peer-selected UW Medicine faculty present lectures on the forefront of research.

New Investigator Lectures: The New Investigator Lectures provide an important forum for the recognition of exceptional junior faculty members’ current scientific research.

Science in Medicine Lectures: Science in Medicine Lectures recognize the body of research for established faculty members as well as recent exciting discoveries.

Distinguished Scientist Lecture: The Distinguished Scientist Lecture recognizes an accomplished School of Medicine senior faculty member, honoring outstanding achievements in the field of research.

Annual Lecture: The Annual Lecture recognizes a prominent, nationally recognized scientist from another research institution, whose research has had a profound impact on their field.
