Perhaps because of the way she can explain complex, biological mechanisms in a way that makes sense to the rest of us, Allison Fryer, PhD, professor of medicine and associate dean for graduate studies, has been chosen to kick off this year’s Marquam Hill Lecture Series, a series designed to share cutting edge research with the general public. Dr. Fryer’s talk, “The Hunt for Biological Mechanisms in Asthma,” will take place Thursday, October 20, 2011 from 7:30 p.m. to 9 p.m. in the OHSU Auditorium.
The lecture is free, but seating is limited. For more information on Dr. Fryer’s research or to register, visit the Marquam Hill Lectures website. Can’t wait? Tune in to the OHSU Effect radio show on October 8 to hear Dr. Fryer talk about current and future asthma treatments.
The Marquam Hill Lectures is presented by the OHSU Foundation, the School of Medicine, the Marquam Hill Steering Committee and OCTRI.
