Science in the News is pleased to announce the 2017 Spring Lecture Series! Every other week, a Harvard graduate or medical student presents current information and ongoing research within a particular field – and we’d like to invite you to join the discussion! Our seminars are free and open to audience members of any age and background.
All spring lectures will be held on Wednesday evenings in Pfizer Hall at Harvard’s Cambridge Campus from 7 to 8:30 p.m. Please see the “directions” link above for instructions on how to access the Mallinckrodt Chemistry Lab and the lecture hall, located at 12 Oxford Street in Cambridge.
