Dr. Stanley J. Korsmeyer

Korsmeyer has made some of the most germane observations in the arena of cell death and apoptosis. In 1985, he and his colleagues identified a cancer-causing gene, called Bcl-2 because of its role in B-cell lymphoma development.

Korsmeyer is a member of the National Academy of Sciences, has won numerous awards and is the author of more than 175 scientific articles. He joined the National Cancer Institute in 1979 as a clinical associate, and was named an NCI senior investigator in 1982. He left NCI in 1986 to join Washington University.

The Dyer lecture is the first in a series of talks presented in conjunction with the NIH Director's Wednesday Afternoon Lectures. The lectureship was established in 1950 in honor of former NIH director Dr. Rolla E. Dyer, a noted authority on infectious diseases. All interested individuals are invited to attend.
