Professor David Paterson is 'delighted to follow in the footsteps of some very distinguished scientists, and being the second non American based academic to be awarded the lecture.'
The Brookhart Lecture was established under the guidance of the late former chairman of the Physiology Department, John Brookhart (1913-1995). Dr. Brookhart was very active in the American Physiological Society and served as its 38th President. Through generous donations by Dr. Brookhart and his family, the endowed lecture series was initiated in 1991 and has hosted numerous distinguished visitors.
