Distinguished Lecture Series

The Department of Ophthalmology Research Seminar Series, held from 5-6pm every fourth Tuesday of the month, features talks from distinguished USC faculty, as well as researchers from other institutions. The series provides a great opportunity for faculty, staff, postdocs and students to learn about the ongoing research outside of his/her own lab, and may also serve as a springboard for new collaborations.
