Lowry Lectures at Kavli Frontiers of Science Symposia

Lowry Lectures at Kavli Frontiers of Science Symposia

Recently, Professor Greg Lowry was invited to give a lecture as part of the Kavli Frontiers of Science lecture series that is put on by the National Academy of Science. His talk, Forecasting Risk of Exposures to Engineered Nanomaterials, was one of three lectures given in the series on nanotoxicology.

This prestigious, invitation only, lecture series was also attended by Professor Jeanne VanBriesen. The symposia brings together outstanding young faculty across a broad range of disciplines to encourage collaboration and communication among the world’s best and brightest young scientists.

U.S. symposium participants are selected from among recipients of prestigious fellowships, awards, and other honors, as well as from nominations by NAS members and other participants.  In addition to learning about research at the frontiers of fields other than their own, the program is intended to create a network of connections that can be maintained as participants advance in their careers.
