The Biochemistry and Molecular Biology Department hosts the inaugural Roger L. McMacken Jr. Memorial Lecture on Friday, December 9 at 2 p.m.

Please join us to honor Dr. McMacken’s legacy in the Biochemistry and Molecular Biology Department.

In his over 40 years at the School, Dr. McMacken touched the professional and academic lives of scores of students, faculty, and trainees. His talent for teaching, research, and guidance helped make BMB the department it is today.

To honor his legacy, the McMacken family, the Department, and others who Roger impacted, established the Roger L. McMacken, Jr. Lectureship and Award. This fund supports a guest lectureship and provides an award to a junior BMB faculty member studying viral or prokaryotic DNA replication or a related area.

The inaugural lecture will begin with a celebration of Roger’s legacy, including presentations by the 2022 Roger McMacken Scholarship recipients. The 2022 McMacken Lecturer is Dr. James Berger, Professor of Biophysics and Biophysical Chemistry and Director of the Institute for Basic Biomedical Sciences at Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine.
