Microbiology Seminars and Events
The Department of Microbiology schedules a variety of seminars each semester, all open to the public. We invite guest lecturers from throughout the Midwest to present research seminars in our weekly Microbiology Seminar Series. One to two times per semester, we host world-class microbiologists to present their research in our Distinguished Lecture Series. In addition, our annual Stark lectures, presented by leading biologists, are funded by the family, friends and students of Orton K. Stark, the founding chair of the Department of Microbiology. To keep abreast of the research in our department, our graduate students present their latest research findings in our weekly Graduate Seminar Series.
