A.L. ChapmanA.L. Chapman Keynote Research Lecture

The A.L. Chapman Lecture series was created in honor of  A.L. Chapman, Professor Emeritus of Anatomy & Cell Biology and Vice Chancellor for Academic Affairs Emeritus.


Dr. Ada Yonath

Sponsored by the Bohan Visiting Professor Program

Dr. Yonath will focus on her seminal research on ribosomes for which she was awarded a Nobel Prize in Chemistry in 2009. She will also talk about her perseverance in conducting thousands of experiments to visualize the ribosome’s structure and function despite worldwide professional disbelief. Her work paved the way for our understanding of protein synthesis and has implications for the development of antibiotics which target ribosomes, for diseases caused by ribosomal mutations, and for the origin of life.

Dr. Yonath will give her Keynote Address on April 7th, 2022 at 11 AM CT.

The honorary speaker for the 2023 A.L. Chapman Keynote Research Lecture will be announced after the 2022 Forum.
