The prestigious Dunham Lectureship was established in 1923 in memory of Edward K. Dunham, MD 1886, to strengthen the bonds of fellowship and understanding among students, investigators, and teachers within the medical and basic sciences for the purpose of advancing medical sciences in the broadest sense. Dunham Lectureship alumni are luminaries in biomedical research.
