The Lawrence-Hawkins Symposium was established in 2004 to honor the research legacy of the founding faculty members of the Kresge Hearing Research Institute, Drs. Merle Lawrence and Joseph Hawkins.
The one-day event is devoted to basic science and clinically related presentations by students, fellows and residents of the department and highlighted with a morning presentation by a distinguished alumnus. Department faculty, trainees and alumni are invited to attend.
This year we welcome keynote lecturer and KHRI alumnus Peter R. Thorne, Ph.D., professor in the Department of Physiology and deputy director for the Center for Brain Research at the University of Auckland in New Zeeland. Dr. Thorne will be presenting his talk, "Life as a Hearing Scientist 'Down Under': A Wonderful Career Through Opportunity." View the full program agenda here.
