Seminars

The PMI invites distinguished scientists to give research lectures and to meet with interested Penn scientists. Our popular seminar series is attended by investigators from a broad constituency, and all members of the Penn Community are invited to attend. The 2018-19 PMI seminar series is chaired by E. Michael Ostap.

To inquire about inviting seminar speakers or meeting with visiting scientists, please contact Ms. Courtney Proctor .
