Professor Harald Zur Hausen, M.D. discovered the HPV virus and its link to cervical cancer. His work laid the ground work for the discovery of Gardasil vaccine.  This lecture is part of the 23rd Annual Biomedical Lecture Series.  

The Biology Department sponsors two annual seminar series:

  • The Biomedical Seminar Series, initiated in 1994, sponsors prominent speakers in the biomedical field and in basic research.
  • The Environmental Sciences Seminar Series, started in 2000, provides opportunity to learn about the unique activities in environmental research, issues and policies. 

These seminars provide a forum for learning about recent advances in basic research, biomedicine and environmental science and expose students and faculty to prominent scientific and medical professionals. The meetings foster collaboration, interaction and career contacts for students pursuing careers in basic research, health, medicine, as well as environmental issues and policy. As well, the Department invites other speakers on campus who have expertise in specific disciplines.
