Groundbreaking research and innovative education programs are at the heart of Van Andel Institute's mission to improve health and enhance lives. Throughout the year, VAI's Virtual Public Lecture Series shines a spotlight on the Institute's latest research into diseases like cancer, Parkinson's and Alzheimer's, as well as the latest trends in K–12 education.
Each lecture features presentations and Q&A sessions, allowing guests to engage directly with VAI's world-class scientists and expert educators. The events will be hosted virtually, so you can participate in these important discussions wherever you are.
Topics for this year's public lectures include Parkinson's disease, immunity and metabolism and education. VAI scientists will share their latest research with guests, and our education experts will explore cutting-edge trends in science instruction.
Each lecture is scheduled for 12–1 p.m. and there is no cost to attend. Registration is required to access each presentation, and guests will receive an email with information on how to join prior to each event.
