The Insight Lecture Series is designed to bring leading speakers on sciences, arts and humanities to Rockefeller to address the wider interests of the scientists on campus — staff, students, postdocs and faculty alike.
In addition to the lectures and concerts held on campus regularly throughout the year, the university also hosts campus-wide events, including Convocation.
Talking Science is designed to engage high school students and their teachers through interactive lectures and demonstrations. This annual event, led by a member of Rockefeller’s world-class faculty, is offered at no cost to the students or school.
The Lewis Thomas Prize for Writing about Science honors the rare individual who bridges the worlds of science and the humanities – whose voice and vision can tell us about science’s aesthetic and philosophical dimensions, providing not merely new information but cause for reflection, even revelation. Lewis Thomas, the noted physician, scientist and essayist who died in 1993, was the prize’s inspiration and its first recipient in 1993.
The Pearl Meister Greengard Prize, established by Dr. Paul Greengard and his wife Ursula von Rydingsvard, recognizes the accomplishments of outstanding women scientists.
