The President’s Lecture Series was established to recognize the importance of UT Southwestern staff in enabling the Medical Center to achieve its mission and goals. The faculty excels in education, research, and patient care only with the contributions of staff, whose work, directly and indirectly, supports faculty endeavors.

The lectures selected in this series provide an opportunity for the employees of UT Southwestern to learn more about the research discoveries, clinical advances, and other contributions of the Medical Center’s most accomplished scientists, physicians, and senior leaders. Three times each academic year, leading experts present a President’s Lecture, discussing in nontechnical terms the basics of their research and clinical programs and their implications for health and medical care.

The President’s Lecture Series is offered in appreciation and respect for the work and dedication of UT Southwestern staff.
