UW Bioengineering Assistant Professor Kim Woodrow has been selected to present a 2015 New Investigator Lecture, part of the UW Medicine Science in Medicine Lecture Series. Dr. Woodrow will present her talk on Wednesday, October 28, 1-2 p.m. at Health Sciences Building’s Turner Auditorium (D-209).
In 2015, th eUW Medicine Science in Medicine Lecture Series celebrates 40 years of highlighting remarkable faculty research at UW School of Medicine. The series’ New Investigator Lectures, initiated in 1988, provide an important forum for the UW School of Medicine to learn about exceptional junior faculty members’ current research.
The Science in Medicine Lecture Series was officially established in 1976 as a means of recognizing and honoring notable School of Medicine faculty research achievements and providing an opportunity for researchers to be apprised of findings outside of their immediate field. See a complete list of previous Science in Medicine speakers. The series has evolved since its inception and now consists of five lecture categories: Science in Medicine Lectures, New Investigator Lectures, the WWAMI Lecture, the Distinguished Scientist Lecture and the Annual Lecture. The speakers are nominated by members of the UW scientific community and final selection is determined by a committee of peers from the Council on Research and Graduate Education.
