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 4, in the Kresge Auditorium at the

The Gall Lecture

internationally renowned pathologist, teacher, and scientist who served
as the chairman of the UC Department of Pathology from 1948 to 1970.
