Distinguished Biomedical Scholars Lecture Series

The Distinguished Biomedical Scholars Lecture Series features top-tier scientists and physicians performing high-impact research in a variety of areas.

Most Lectures, with few exceptions, will be held on the third Thursday of each month beginning in September. The seminars will be of broad interest and are open to all University of Iowa faculty, staff, students and the public. A list of previous speakers is located here.  A printer-friendly seminar schedule for 2017-2018 will be posted at a later date. Some seminars are recorded and can be viewed by University of Iowa faculty, staff and students online.
