Events

Our founders Jim and Virginia Stowers envisioned a highly collaborative, intellectually stimulating environment where scientists would freely share their ideas and create the kind of creative synergy that spurs great discoveries. Embracing this vision, the Stowers Institute regularly hosts renowned scientists from around the nation and world through a variety of seminars, symposia, conferences, and special guest events.

 

BIG IDEAS

BIG IDEAS @ScienceStowers is a lecture series that explores how science informs and inspires our communities. It aims to bring cutting-edge and provocative scientific ideas in an engaging and accessible way to the greater Kansas City community. The series is designed to inspire a thirst for scientific knowledge and illustrate the roles that scientific discoveries play in our lives and communities.

Wednesday Lecture Series

This ongoing seminar series explores topics in many areas of research through scientifically technical presentations by distinguished researchers from institutions across the country and around the world. This public lecture series, geared for scientific audiences, is held during the academic fall and spring semesters.

Conferences

The Stowers Institute hosts a variety of conferences. These events, organized by Stowers faculty and often other scientific organizations, bring together distinguished scientists from around the world who present their work in a specific area of science and provide a platform for advanced scientific dialogue.

Seminars

Special seminars are hosted weekly by individual labs and research groups featuring guest scientists presenting topics related to the research interests of Institute scientists. These private seminars provide an opportunity for discussion of unpublished original research topics.
