More on Academic Events & Lectures

The Monday Lecture Series provides a forum for Rockefeller scientists to learn about the full range of research being carried out at the university. Monday lectures are informal – a chance for heads of laboratories to share new data and discuss research in progress. The Monday series also offers a venue for talks by visiting faculty who spend an extended period of time at the university. Lectures take place in the university’s Carson Auditorium at 4:00 p.m. (preceded by a tea/coffee reception at 3:45 p.m.) Monday lectures are open to Rockefeller community members only.

The Friday Lecture Series is one of the principal university-wide activities of the academic year. Scientists from around the world, and from varying disciplines, are invited to speak to the Rockefeller community and members of neighboring institutions to share their recent research, techniques and findings. Lectures take place in the university’s Caspary Auditorium at 3:30 p.m. (preceded by a tea/coffee reception at 3:00 p.m.)

The Special Seminar Series was established in the winter of 2007 to provide an opportunity for the University to highlight specific areas of research. The topical focus of these seminars changes based on campus initiatives, and the Series also includes speakers with potential interest to our ongoing faculty recruitment process. Seminars will be held on Mondays or Wednesdays at 4 p.m. in the Carson Family Auditorium and will be preceded by a tea/coffee reception at 3:45 p.m. Special seminars are open to Rockefeller community members only.

Academic Symposia are hosted throughout the year to honor, celebrate, and acknowledge scientific achievements of the University’s faculty, as well as national and international leaders spanning various fields of research.
