The prestigious Distinguished Faculty Lectureship Award in Biomedical Research will be held on Dec. 12, honoring Thomas W. Glover, Ph.D., professor of human genetics, professor of pathology, and professor of pediatrics.

Glover will present on “Chromosome Fragile Sites: Windows to Novel Mechanisms of Genome Rearrangements and DNA Repair,” and the event will be hosted by Marschall Runge, M.D., Ph.D., dean of the medical school and Meredith A. Morgan, Ph.D., Chair of the Biomedical Research Council (BMRC).

Glover is being recognized for his fundamental discoveries in human genetics, including as the defining scientist of the field of human common fragile sites — a pervasive feature of human chromosomes that has become increasingly important to the understanding of critical molecular mechanisms and related human genomic disorders. He is an outstanding cytogeneticist who routinely applies his unique research insights in the clinical laboratory, and he is widely known as a dedicated mentor and generous collaborator.

The Distinguished Faculty Lectureship Award in Biomedical Research recognizes a faculty member who has shown long-term contributions of biomedical research, teaching and service to U-M.

Registration is not required. All are welcome!
