The Institute hosts a wide variety of outreach activities for faculty, students, and the public. An annual Distinguished Speaker Series brings leading academics from a wide variety of disciplines to UCI. In the past academic years IGB was pleased to host Jay D. Keasling the Hubbard Howe Distinguished Professor of Biochemical Engineering in the Departments of Chemical Engineering and Bioengineering at the University of California, Berkeley. Dr. Keasling is also Senior Faculty Scientist and Division Director in the Physical Biosciences Director at the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory and Chief Executive Officer of the Joint BioEnergy Institute in Emeryville, CA. The 2010-2011 Distinguished Speaker Series schedule is now posted.
Periodically, IGB hosts visiting scientists from industry, academia and government. As with other IGB events, these Seminars are advertised through our website and email.
