IODP DRILLS is a topical scientific lecture series to feature prominent, internationally known scientists describing scientific results derived from samples retrieved from beneath the ocean floor. DRILLS will actively engage future generations of scientists in ocean drilling, while highlighting scientific ocean drilling’s major accomplishments to the scientific community and beyond.

The three speakers in the lecture series in 2008 are also InterRidge Members:
- Dr. Bo Barker Jørgensen, of the Max Planck Institute for Marine Microbiology, Germany;
- Dr. Ted Moore of University of Michigan;
- Dr. Yoshiyuki Tatsumi of Japan Agency for Marine-Earth Science and Technology (JAMSTEC).

Each DRILLS lecturer will address a primary IODP theme:
- Deep biosphere and subseafloor ocean;
- Environmental change, processes, and effects;
- Solid earth cycles and geodynamics.
