Science Forum

The weekly UT Science Forum provides the general public, students and other researchers an opportunity to learn about the latest cutting-edge research at UT, ORNL and other local institutions.

Grab your lunch and join us Fridays at noon in Thompson-Boling Arena Café for an opportunity to discuss the latest scientific research with distinguished professors and researchers. Presentations are 40 minutes and designed for the general public. A question-and-answer session follows each presentation.

Interested in speaking or know someone you would like to recommend? Please contact Mark Littmann, Program Chair, by email or call 865-974-8156.
