Brinson Lectures

The Brinson Lecture is held every spring to present cutting-edge science in an event that is free and open to the public. These lectures are made possible by a generous gift from the Brinson Foundation to the University of Chicago. Recent speakers in this prominent series include Nobel Laureates Kip Thorne and John Mather, pioneering exoplanet scientist Sara Seager, and Martin Rees, Astronomer Royal.
