Research Lecture Series
Under this program recognized vision scientists are invited to the College to give presentations about their research. These presentations are followed by discussion sessions and informal receptions so the College community has an opportunity to become better acquainted with researchers and their projects in other laboratories. The research lecture series is also a required activity for 2nd & 3rd year OD/MS students.
All are welcome to attend. One hour of Mass C.E. credit will be offered. Please join us for a wine and cheese reception following each lecture.
Visit Continuing Education for more information on the continuing education credit.

Recognized researchers who have interests in common with members of the College's research community are invited to come to the College for time periods ranging from one to three months. During their visit they are encouraged to collaborate with the College's researchers on projects or to develop collaborative projects which may continue after the site visit ends. This program is designed to broaden research activity, stimulate an active exchange of ideas, and nurture the development of new projects.
