Call for Nominations: Discovery Science Grand Rounds
The basic science chairs at the Miller School invite all departments conducting discovery science research to nominate one or more faculty members to present this year’s Discovery Science Grand Rounds by submitting the faculty member’s name and a brief summary of the proposed topic by January 31.
The Discovery Science presentations should convey novel concepts and insights without focusing on a narrow set of specialized data. Diagrammatic summaries and graphics are encouraged, but over-generalization should be avoided.
The next series of Discovery Science Grand Rounds, held the second Thursday of each month, will start Thursday, March 14, from 5 to 6 p.m. at the Lois Pope LIFE Center, seventh-floor auditorium. The 40-minute lectures, which have a format similar to keynote lectures at scientific meetings, will focus on fields of exceptional significance and novelty with a broad interdisciplinary interest. Only UM faculty will be invited to present.
The Grand Rounds are intended to increase awareness of scientific achievements at the Miller School and highlight the importance of basic science discoveries inside and outside the University community. Each lecture will begin with a 20-minute reception starting at 4:40 p.m. to meet the speaker and enjoy refreshments. The Grand Rounds will be recorded for wider distribution.
