Ramsey Lecture Series


The mission of the Frank K. Ramsey college-wide seminar series is to enhance the scientific community by engaging all members of the veterinary college in discussions of cutting-edge, high-level comparative biology, medicine, and/or veterinary science. This seminar series will highlight speakers who are topic experts in areas related to the basic sciences, translational medicine, and/or One Medicine.

Vet Med's Ramsey lectures are open to the public.  Guest lecturers are invited to the college to participate in this lecture series during the fall and spring semesters, with lectures beginning at noon on the date scheduled.  Lectures during the semester are posted on the college's home page

The Ramsey Lecture Series, established in 1977, is named for Dr. Frank Ramsey (1910-1992), who taught veterinary pathology at ISU for 34 years and served as department chair of the department of veterinary pathology from 1957 to 1975.  He established an endowment at the college.  This lecture series is intended to bring accomplished and leading animal and human health researchers to campus to share their work and experiences with faculty, staff and students.
