2013 George Adrouny Memorial Lecture
A packed house of attendees participated in the 2013 George Adrouny Memorial Lecture, held Friday, April 12, 2013, double the number of attendees from the year before. Our featured speaker for this event was Arnold J. Levine, Ph.D., Professor, Systems Biology at the Institute for Advanced Study, Princeton, New Jersey. This was our first year to hold the annual event in the first floor auditorium of the new Louisiana Cancer Research Center (LCRC) at 1700 Tulane Avenue in New Orleans. The title of Dr. Levine’s seminar was “The Evolution of the p53 Family of Genes and their Role in Cancer”.
This year’s Adrouny Award winner was Tyler Scullen, who received recognition as the first-year medical student with the highest combined GPA for the two medical biochemistry courses, Cellular Biochemistry and Metabolic Biochemistry. Tyler also scored the highest in his 2016 class on the NBME Biochemistry Shelf Exam.
Following the lecture and award presentation, a reception was held in the Auditorium of the LCRC, giving individuals an opportunity to meet with Dr. Levine and to congratulate Mr. Scullen on his achievements.
Information on the 2014 lecture will be provided once the date and speaker have been confirmed. Look at this website for future updates.
