Yesterday, June 28th 2012, we welcomed Professor Bill Campbell who gave a superb talk entitled "The story of Ivermectin:
a drug for the control of River Blindness and other parasitic diseases."
Prof. Campbell, a Natural Science (Zoology) graduate of Trinity, was formerly Senior Director of Parasitology at Merck & Co. where he was involved in the development of several drugs used in human and veterinary medicine. For many years he lectured on parasitology at New York Medical College. Upon retirement from the pharmaceutical industry, he became a Fellow of the Research Institute for Scientists Emeriti at Drew University. In 2001 he was elected to membership in the National Academy of Science of the United States of America.
Professor Campbell will receive an honorary degree from Trinity College, today, the 29th of June 2012.
Congratulations also to Alisa Bowen who was conferred with a First Class degree in Zoology.
We are therefore celebrating 60 years of Parasitology in Zoology.
