Biard Public Lecture

CCAPP is proud to present the Annual R. Jack and Forest Lynn Biard Cosmology and Astrophysics Lecture, the annual series of public lectures which is supported by a generous gift from Captain Forrest R. Biard, U.S. Navy, Ret., a 1953 MS recipient from the Ohio State University. The Biard Lecture will form the cornerstone of CCAPP's outreach effort, bringing forefront research in cosmology and astrophysics to OSU's undergraduates, the University community, and the general public.
