Interdisciplinary Research Seminar
The HBC established the Interdisciplinary Research Seminars in the summer of 2008 to assist in bringing individuals to the Lawrence campus for scientific discussions and presentations falling under one of the HBC major research themes. The program is designed to allow faculty to invite colleagues and potential collaborators to not only present their science but to discuss with KU faculty future collaborations. HBC participants are encouraged to nominate speakers for the seminar series. The Center aims to host three to four such speakers annually.
Dr. Shi Du Yan, Professor of Pathology and Surgery at Columbia University, was the first presenter of the Interdisciplinary Research Seminars and gave the presentation, "Targets of Alzheimer's Disease and Beyond: From Animal Model to Clinical Implication". During this visit to KU, Dr. Yan met with numerous participants engaged in neuroscience research and drug discovery research and this visit eventually led to the successful recruitment of this internationally recognized scientist to KU as the new Mossberg Distinguished Professor of Pharmacogenomics.
The central theme of all the lectures presented is that of research at the interface between chemistry, biology, biophysics, and pharmaceutical sciences. Any HBC Investigator may submit a request to invite a presenter in the HBC Interdisciplinary Research Seminar Series, thus the selection of presenters in this series is not a centrally organized activity by the HBC administration but depends on the initiative of HBC Investigators.
Seminar for the 2017 Spring Semester
Date and Time: TBA
Professional Research Seminar
The HBC-affiliated Research Professors and Core Laboratory Directors have offered to present their work in formal seminar sessions so that all investigators in the biomedical sciences may learn about their research, provide them with feedback, and consider future joint projects with them. These scientists participate in multiple research projects, supervise the research being performed in their laboratory, and assist in the training of graduate and undergraduate students. These seminar presentations are given every second Friday of the month at 1:30 pm in Rm 3004 of the School of Pharmacy Building, west campus.
