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 occasionally in partnership with other research organizations, bring together distinguished scientists from around the world who present their work and provide a platform for advanced scientific dialogue. Stowers Research Conferences are the flagship series of Stowers-hosted conferences.

Translational Research Series

The Translational Research Series highlights research from Kansas City area institutions. These seminars are intended to provide an avenue for meaningful discussions and collaborations that move foundational science discoveries into practice more quickly and efficiently for the benefit of human health. Held during the academic year, the seminars are co-organized and attended by researchers from the Stowers Institute, Children’s Mercy, the University of Kansas Medical Center, and the University of Missouri-Kansas City. Seminars are currently offered in virtual format. For more information, contact TranslationalResearchSeminar_u@stowers.org.
