Alison gave the Douglas Eveleigh Endowed Lecture at the Marine Biological Laboratory at Woods Hole, MA on July 19th, 2016.  Douglas Eveleigh is a distinguished professor in the Department of Biochemistry and Microbiology at the Rutgers School of Environmental and Biological Sciences.  This lectureship is endowed by the Wakman Foundation in recognition of Professor Eveleigh’s efforts to sustain the legacy of Selman Waksman, who was also a professor of biochemistry and microbiology at Rutgers University.  In 1952 Selman Waksman was awarded the Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine in recognition "for his discovery of "streptomycin," the first antibiotic active against tuberculosis.  Alison is very pleased that Nan Waksman Schanbacher, granddaughter of Selman Waksman, was present at her lecture.
