The University of Arizona in 2019 marked its 14th year offering a free Science Lecture Series. Previous years saw the series cover topics ranging from Cosmic Origins to last spring's theme of Humans, Data and Machines.
The recently completed 2019 event again gave scientists from across several disciplines the chance to present debates and discoveries that define science today. They described their research in the context of the Search for Certainty, the theme of this year's lecture series, during a roundtable discussion at Arizona Public Media.
"There is a misunderstanding of what science and scientists are doing these days," said College of Science Dean Joaquin Ruiz, who moderated the roundtable. "All of the presenters created a lecture in which they gave the details of what science has done for the public."
This year's group of lecturers came from the University of Arizona College of Science and the UA College of Medicine:
All of the lectures are available online, and each presentation was livestreamed by Arizona Public Media.
