Nobel Laureate, Dr. Harold Varmus, to speak at NYU on February 9th!

How can you use scientific study to tackle cross-border, global health challenges? What does it take to implement research across disciplinary, geopolitical and cultural borders to enact meaningful change around the world?

On Thursday, February 9th the NYU Leadership Initiative in collaboration with the NYU Office of Postdoctoral Affairs is proud to host Nobel Laureate Dr. Harold Varmus (’89, Medicine), who will present a talk entitled, “Bringing Cancer Research to the Developing World.” Dr. Varmus has transitioned his distinguished scientific background into leadership roles in global health policy. He is the former director of the National Cancer Institute, the former director of the National Institutes of Health, and a current professor at the Weill Cornell School of Medicine. During the talk, the NYU community will gain insight into how and why Dr. Varmus has used his background in science to guide his policy leadership career. After the talk, there will be time to ask your questions in a special Q&A session.

Registration is limited! RSVP today!

NYU Speaking Freely

Get a taste of a new language and culture without leaving home! Speaking Freely is available to all NYU undergraduate and graduate students and staff. The 75-minute language coaching sessions meet once a week for ten weeks each semester at various locations on campus. Each week, you will learn how to communicate on a different topic, or you might enjoy a related activity – a movie, concert, or neighborhood visit – as part of a small, informal language group. No books are required and there’s no pressure of grades!


Speaking Freely offers sessions in Arabic, Czech, Dutch, French, Greek (Modern), Hebrew, Hindi, Italian, Japanese, Korean, Mandarin, Russian, and Spanish. It’s all free and easy. Meet new people and have fun. It’s the perfect way to try out a language and culture before you study or visit.

Speaking Freely sessions emphasize learning practical words and phrases you might use when traveling or studying abroad, as well as vocabulary related to various aspects of art, history, and culture. At least two levels of coaching are offered for most of the languages, and a third level is offered in two of the languages. Level 1 is a basic introduction for those who have no experience in the language. Level 2 is slightly more advanced, and meant for those who have completed Level 1 or those who have basic experience in the language. Level 3 is meant for those who are fairly proficient, and have studied the language for a few years or more in high school or college. All topics covered are based on student interest and conversation is emphasized.

Speaking Freely classes begin the week of February 6th and conclude April 24th.
