The weekly John Lawrence Seminars in Biosciences take place on Tuesdays, from 4 to 5 p.m. in several Berkeley Lab locations, depending on the seminar topic; exceptions to day and time may occur. The lectures are supported by an endowment created by generous gifts from patients and family of John H. Lawrence, M.D., D.Sc., F.A.C.P, the Father of Nuclear Medicine (pictured in 1955) and brother of Nobel Laureate Ernest O. Lawrence. Learn more about John H. Lawrence.
The series is currently not open to the public but offered to Biosciences researchers, their Lab colleagues, and guests. Our speakers represent a broad range of biosciences research areas and are nominated and hosted by researchers of the three divisions and user facility in the Biosciences Area. Please contact our seminar coordinator for further details and confirmation, as needed.
