About the lecture series

Lecture events each spring and fall spotlight distinguished UCI Susan & Henry Samueli College of Health Sciences faculty members—individuals whose discoveries place them at the forefront of transforming healthcare.

In 2021, the lecture series was named to honor the late Madeline Martin Swinden, long-standing Research Associates president, for her enduring contributions to health sciences research at UCI. All community members are invited to attend.
