Every year the M.R. Bauer Distinguished Lecturer program brings to campus two distinguished visitors who spend a full week at Brandeis. These weeklong visitors present talks to small and large groups, visit Center laboratories, and engage students, postdoctoral fellows and faculty in informational and highly interactive conversations about shared areas of research interests. This year our distinguished lecturers were Larry Abbott from Columbia University and John Carlson from Yale University.
