Colloquia & Seminars

Go to the next scheduled seminar

At approximately one month intervals during the academic year the Center for Radiological Research is pleased to welcome accomplished specialists from around the world to present formal seminars and/or spend time discussing ongoing research. These seminars are attended by Center and RARAF professional staff, senior technical staff and graduate students, as well as doctors and scientists from other departments of the College of Physicians & Surgeons interested in collaborative research. Attention has focused on recent findings and future plans, with special emphasis on the interdisciplinary nature of our research effort. Presently Dr. Lubomir B. Smilenov is organizing these sessions and scheduling the speakers.
