The John & Barbara Ferrera Ocean Science Lecture Series provides a forum for the community at large to learn about Harbor Branch's most recent discoveries directly from the scientists who made them. The invited speakers from other institutions are colleagues who work on topics relevant to our Harbor Branch research themes.

In the coming year, FAU Harbor Branch seeks additional support to expand the scholarly offerings by inviting high-profile, distinguished scientists and engineers to join the 2019 lecture series. In addition to their public presentations, visiting scholars will meet with FAU Harbor Branch staff and students to discuss the technical side of their work. This will provide unique networking and learning opportunities for our staff and students during their visit.
Gifts to support these visits are being solicited with a minimal donation of $1,000. That amount will typically support all travel costs associated with the visit (i.e., air fares, car rental, hotel, food expenses) and honorariums. Donors for a lecture will be acknowledged at the beginning of the lecture and in the printed OSLS program.
