We bring scientific leaders in health research to Marshfield Clinic Research Institute for our Scientific Seminar series. These seminars allow us to highlight important health research being completed around the world. Below are recordings of the Scientific Seminars in 2022.

The Scientific Seminar series provides presenters with planning and travel support. If you are interested in inviting a speaker or presenting your research, contact Casper Bendixsen, Ph.D., chairman of the Scientific Seminar series or call 715-387-9410.
