A few times a year, Janelia opens its doors to the greater community through a public lecture series called Dialogues of Discovery. In these evening lectures, researchers from Janelia and labs across the country share their work. Serious, insightful, funny, and often personal, the talks offer a window into how science works.
All lectures are free and open to the public. Tickets are required for admission, and seating is limited to 250 people. Dialogues of Discovery lectures often include special features for high school students.
