Barry Berman Memorial Lecture Series

The goal of the Barry Berman Memorial Lecture Series is to inspire young people to study medical physics by inviting nationally and internationally prominent scientists to speak on the application of physics principles to medicine. The series was founded in 2011 through a generous gift from one of Berman’s close collaborators and colleagues, Cedric Yu, a faculty member at the University of Maryland School of Medicine Department of Radiation Oncology.

Professors Berman and Yu formerly worked together under a National Institutes of Health-funded project on radiation cancer therapy.
