Science in Medicine Lecture Series

​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​Science in Medicine Lecture Series Celebrates 40 Years of Outstanding Science​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​!

The 2015/16 Science in Medicine Lecture Series will mark 40 years of highlighting remarkable faculty research at UW School of Medicine. The speakers are nominated by members of the UW scientific community, and the final selection is determined by a committee of peers from the Council on Research and Graduate Education.

The 2015/16 series will present an exceptional lineup of investigators!

​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​Background​

The Science in Medicine Lecture Series was officially established in 1976 as a means of recognizing and honoring notable School of Medicine faculty research achievements and providing an opportunity for researchers to be apprised of findings outside of their immediate field. See a complete list of previous Science in Medicine speakers. The series has evolved since its inception and now consists of five lecture categories: Science in Medicine Lectures, New Investigator Lectures, the WWAMI Lecture, the Distinguished Scientist Lecture and the Annual Lecture. The speakers are nominated by members of the UW scientific community and final selection is determined by a committee of peers from the Council on Research and Graduate Education.
 

New Investigator Lectures

The New Investigator Lectures, initiated in 1988, provide an important forum for the UW School of Medicine to learn about exceptional junior faculty members’ current scientific research.

Science in Medicine Lectures

Science in Medicine Lecturers are accomplished faculty selected in recognition of their research as well as for a recent exciting discovery.

WWAMI Lecture

Established in 1985, the WWAMI Lecture is given by an affiliate faculty member from one of the WWAMI (Washington, Wyoming, Alaska, Montana, and Idaho) sites. The WWAMI Lecture provides a valuable opportunity for interaction between the invited speaker and colleagues at the UW School of Medicine.

Distinguished Scientist Lecture

Inaugurated in 1993, the Distinguished Scientist Lecture recognizes an accomplished UW senior scientist for outstanding achievements in his or her field of research.

Annual Lecture

The first Annual Lecture was presented in 1973 and later became incorporated into the official Science in Medicine Series. The Annual Lecture recognizes a prominent, nationally recognized scientist whose research has had a profound impact on his or her field.

2015/16 Science in Medicine Lecture Series

On behalf of the School of Medicine and the Council on Research and Graduate Education, we congratulate the presenting 2015/16 Science in Medicine Lecturers!
