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 (CORGE).
New Investigator Lectures
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.
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 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.
