PROMISE Community Lecture Series
Are you interested in science?  Have you ever wondered about the scientific research being performed in your own community?  The PROMISE Community Lecture Series provides a unique opportunity for science-minded individuals within our community to learn about local research projects from the scientists themselves.  Monthly lectures are provided by leading academic and industry scientists within the region.
