Gall Lecture Features Human Genetics and Gene Therapy

Cincinnati—The University of Cincinnati (UC) College of Medicine Department of Pathology and Lab Medicine will present the annual Edward A. Gall Lecture at noon on April 6, in the Kresge Auditorium at the Medical Sciences Building, 231 Bethesda Avenue.

The Gall lecturer will be Arno G. Motulsky, MD, a physician-scientist who has worked extensively on the genetics and biochemistry of hereditary red blood cell defects. He is currently carrying out investigations on the role of genetic polymorphism resistance and susceptibility to disease from environmental agents (ecogenetics).

Motulsky is professor emeritus of medicine and genetics at the University of Washington in Seattle, a founder of the field of pharmacogenetics and the role of genetic variation in response to drugs, and a recipient of the Allan Award of the American Society of Human Genetics.

The Gall Lecture is presented each year in memory of Edward A. Gall, MD, an internationally renowned pathologist, teacher, and scientist who served as the chairman of the UC Department of Pathology from 1948 to 1970. Gall was the first vice president of the University for Medical Affairs in 1970 until his retirement in 1974. One of only four to be named a UC Distinguished Service Professor, Gall studied diseases of the liver and lymph nodes. His colleagues, family, and friends established this lectureship in his memory.
