The Office of Faculty Development (OFD) at Memorial Sloan Kettering sponsors student talks and lectures pertaining to cancer and related topics. Students at all educational levels (college, high school, post-baccalaureate, medical school, graduate school) are welcome to attend one or more of these seminars. Our goal is to share the expertise of MSK faculty with students, communicate the excitement of cancer research, and create a learning environment for students and staff at MSK.

These student lectures are presented throughout the year and may be viewed either in person or on the MSK YouTube Channel; all are free and open to the public. If you have any questions or would like to be added to our mailing list, please contact us at [email protected] or 212-639-5732.
