Lecture Series

In honor of UCSF’s 150th Anniversary, UCSF Archives & Special Collections has launched a lecture series to introduce a wider community to its holdings, to provide an opportunity for researchers to discuss how they use this material, and to celebrate clinicians, scientists, and health care professionals who have donated their papers to the archives.

These lectures are free and open to the public. For further inquiries please contact Polina Ilieva.
