Stevenson Biomaterials Lecture Series


The Stevenson Biomaterials Lecture Series

The Stevenson Biomaterials Lecture Series was established in 2007 thanks to the generous support of the late Trustees Ann McOmber Stevenson (Nursing ‘52) and Milton F. Stevenson III (Chemical Engineering ’53).

Each semester, the series brings pioneering biomaterials researchers to the Syracuse University campus. Presenters are selected based on their leading roles in biomaterials research, and are asked to speak on their latest endeavors. In addition, Stevenson lecturers visit with faculty and students to exchange ideas, build bridges, and become familiar with the broad range of biomaterials activities at Syracuse University.
