Maurice R. Hilleman Lecture on Virology

In celebration of the work of Maurice R. Hilleman, the Department of Microbiology and the Committee on Microbiology hosted the Maurice R. Hilleman Lecture on Virology on May 13, 2016.  Dr. Hilleman, who receive a Ph.D. in Microbiology from the University of Chicago in 1944, is credited with saving millions of lives through the development of numerous vaccines, including those for mumps, measles, chicken pox, and meningitis.

This year, we were honored to have Herbert W. "Skip" Virgin IV, M.D., Ph.D., of the Washington University School of Medicine as our guest speaker.  Dr. Virgin's presentation, "Role of Autophagy and Autophagy Genes in Immunity and Inflammation," was followed by a small reception and a faculty dinner.
