The Distinguished Seminar Series is an invited lectureship where renowned researchers and clinicians spend 1-2 days discussing new research ideas with VDI faculty, staff and trainees. The visit culminates with the presentation of cutting edge research related to normal visual function and/or visual diseases. The VDI is honored to present these distinguished speakers to the GRU community.
The seminar series is held in the CB Building room CB1801 on the Augusta University Health Sciences Campus from 12:00-1:00 p.m. with light refreshments are provided at 11:45 p.m. No registration is needed and all are welcome to attend. If you have questions, please feel free to call 706-721-1150.
