Generous donations to the Department of Physiology & Pharmacology have enabled us to host four premier, endowed lectureships. These series invite prominent scientists from around the world to OHSU to share their science and meet with faculty, postdoctoral fellows, and graduate students. These lectures have featured Nobel Laureates, members of the National Academy of Sciences, and other preeminent researchers. Annual lectures include the Goodman Lecture, the Brookhart Lecture, the Riker Lecture, and the Shutter Lecture.
As a part of the Departmental Seminar series and often in collaboration with other OHSU units, we are proud to host a range of speakers from across the nation and around the world. The varied topics and expertise are a stimulus for faculty, postdoctoral fellows, and graduate students alike. External speakers generally share lunch with graduate students and postdoctoral fellows during their visits.
