Scientific talks for staff to begin June 6

The President's Lecture Series for the UT Southwestern staff will debut at 4 p.m. June 6 in the Tom and Lula Gooch Auditorium. The lectures, offered three times annually, provide an opportunity for leading UT Southwestern scientists and physicians to share information about their ongoing research and clinical advances with those whose work helps them excel.

The first lecture will feature Nobel Prize winners Drs. Michael Brown and Joseph Goldstein discussing in laymen's terms the 33-year history of their groundbreaking discoveries on cholesterol, in a talk titled "The Cholesterol Cycle: From Bed to Bench and Back."

"UT Southwestern has accomplished great things in its short history not only because of the physicians, teachers and researchers who work here, but because of all the outstanding staff who help them excel. This series of events is a means for the faculty and administration to express appreciation for that support and for members of the staff to learn more about the institution where they work," said Dr. Kern Wildenthal, president of the medical center.

The June 6 presentation will be followed by light refreshments and an opportunity to visit informally with the speakers.
