First Annual Schnoes Lectureship
Thanks to a generous donation from Robert and Dolores Schnoes, the Department of Urology has a new endowed lecture series that will support a visiting lecturer each fall in an area of urologic cancer treatment or research.
The first Schnoes Lecture will be given by Donald S. Coffey, Ph.D., Director of the Brady Urological Research Laboratory at Johns Hopkins, on October 22, 2009. Dr. Coffey earned his Ph.D. in physiological chemistry from Hopkins in 1964 and joined their faculty in 1966. He is noted for his research on the role of cell shape in prostatic cancer cells, and more recently, his groundbreaking work on the nuclear matrix and reproduction of DNA. Coffey has collaborated with and mentored numerous researchers during his distinguished career. He has been a member of the National Prostatic Cancer Task Force since 1971 and became National Chairman of that group in 1984.
The Schnoes lecture series is off to a great start!
