To recognize the scientific achievements of Dr. Aaron Shatkin, founding director of CABM, and to celebrate the excellence in science and education that he fostered, an endowed annual lectureship was established in his name. Dr. Shatkin attended the inaugural lecture held on April 16, 2012 and delivered by Dr. Harold Varmus, Director of the National Cancer Institute (NCI) and co-recipient of a Nobel Prize for the discovery of the cellular origin of a retroviral oncogene in Rous sarcoma virus.
