On Monday, December 16, 2013, the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID) of the National Institutes of Health (NIH) welcomed Dr. Arturo Casadevall to its Bethesda, Maryland campus to deliver the Joseph J. Kinyoun Memorial Lecture. This prestigious honor features invited speakers who are world-renowned experts in their fields, who highlight research advances in the understanding of infection and immunity. Dr. Casadevall spoke about "Thoughts on the Origin of Microbial Virulence."
The NIAID established the lecture series in 1979, to honor the memory and scholarship of Dr. Kinyoun, who, in 1887, founded the Hygienic Laboratory – forerunner to the current NIH. In his lecture, Dr. Casadevall explored why some microorganisms, such as fungi, don't typically seem to affect human beings as much as insects or plants. He is professor and chair of microbiology & immunology, as well as professor of medicine and director of Einstein's Center for Immunological Diseases. He also holds the Leo and Julia Forchheimer Chair in Microbiology & Immunology.
