Remember that presenters in the Barbara McClintock Life Sciences Lecture Series are scientists who have broad appeal across the disciplines. They have superb scientific and communication skills able to inform, inspire, and spark interdisciplinary research. The committee encourages nominators to discuss their proposed nomination with a member of the committee before submission.
Nominations for academic year 2022-2023 can be made at any time before September 1, 2021. The committee will meet in early September 2021 to select lecturers for the 2022-2023 academic year.
