The Forbes Lectureship is an integral part of the Grass Fellowship Program. This Lectureship began in 1959 in honor of Alexander Forbes.
Each year a high-profile scientist from outside the MBL community is invited by the Trustees of The Grass Foundation to present two lectures, one of which is part of MBL’s Friday Evening Lecture Series. The other is given the following Monday in collaboration with the Neurobiology Course and the Systems&Behavior Course. In addition, the scientist spends time in residence with the Grass Fellows advising them on their projects and career paths.
Upcoming Forbes Lecturers:
2021 Dr. Guoping Feng, Massachusetts Institute of Technology
2022 Dr. Jeffrey L. Noebels, Baylor College of Medicine
