Gordon Tomkins Lecture & Concert presents Nergis Mavalvala/Music by Brooklyn Rider

This is the largest major public event at our university, held biennially in memory of Gordon Tomkins, a brilliant, eclectic visionary scientist and an accomplished jazz and classical musician. His untimely death in 1975 is commemorated by a campus-wide lecture and concert that has brought to UCSF researchers from various disciplines that have made exceptional contributions in their fields. The one-hour lecture is unusual in that it is combined with an hour of music, and so represents a welcome synthesis of science and art in our largely science-focused community. The large, diverse audience is from UCSF, UC Berkeley, Stanford, other local institutions, and the local community.
