Past Highlights

In April 2013, DU Physics & Astronomy welcomed to campus particle physicist Lisa Randall, Frank B. Baird, Jr. Professor of Science at Harvard University. As part of the American Physical Society's April Meeting, Prof. Randall accepted the Andrew Gemant Award from the American Institute of Physics and presented a public lecture entitled "Truth, Beauty, and Other Scientific Misconceptions."

In 2010, we were privileged to host Dr. Eric Mazur from Harvard University as a Marsico Visiting Scholar. Click below to watch Dr. Mazur's Marsico presentation, "Confessions of a Converted Lecturer," which he gave at DU on October 15, 2010.
