The Center for Genetic Medicine of Northwestern University welcomes you to attend the Richard A. Scott, MD Lecture on Tuesday, November 28, 2017, featuring Christine Seidman, MD, Thomas W. Smith Professor of Medicine and Genetics, Harvard Medical School; Director, Cardiovascular Genetics Center, Brigham and Women’s Hospital; HHMI Investigator.

Christine Seidman, MD and Jonathan Seidman, PhD have discovered genetic etiologies and mechanisms for human heart disease. Their work has provided fundamental insights into myocyte biology, enabled gene-based diagnosis, and defined novel therapeutic targets.




The Scott Lecture Series is co-sponsored by Northwestern University's Driskill Graduate Program (DGP) in Life Sciences, part of the Lectures in Life Sciences series.

The Scott Lecture Series was created as an educational platform to appeal to the medical community of Northwestern University. It is funded under the generous bequest of alum Richard A. Scott, MD. After Dr. Scott passed away, his wife and family established the lecture series in honor of Dr. Scott’s lifelong interest in research and learning.
