Research Lecture Series

Lunchtime Lectures & Research Seminars

The BRIT Lecture Series is designed to create community wide conversation about a diverse range of important and rapidly developing topics. This series gives scientists and speakers a forum for sharing the most current information about their areas of expertise and allows the public to interact with leading members of the local, national, and international scientific community.

Our Lecture Series is made up of Lunchtime Lectures and Research Seminars. Lunchtime Lectures take place the first Tuesday of each month, February – July and September – November, from noon – 1pm (Central) in the BRIT Commons (**Now held virtually until further notice**). Research Seminars take place periodically throughout the year and are scheduled based on the availability of our in-house and visiting researchers.

All events are free and open to the public. Please watch this page and our social media channels for announcements of upcoming Lunchtime Lectures and Researcher Seminars. For email reminders about upcoming programs, events, and opportunities from BRIT Research, please sign up for our BRIT Research Mailing List.
