UW SDRC Seminars

The UW SDRC Seminars bring noted researchers specializing in cutaneous biology from the UW and other research institutions to share their experiences and discoveries with clinical and laboratory researchers. The Seminars are part of our Visiting Professors Program, and provide an opportunity for members of our campus that are interested in the study of skin biology and skin diseases to engage with these researchers, learn about their projects, and form new collaborative connections. The entire UW community is invited to these events.
