NICHD hosts a renowned speaker to give the annual Dr. Mortimer B. Lipsett Lecture. Dr. Lipsett, who died in 1985, was known for his expertise in a variety of endocrine-related disorders and served the NIH for more than 25 years as a biomedical investigator, physician, and administrator. He had the distinction of having been named Director of the Warren Grant Magnuson Clinical Center, NICHD, and the National Institute of Arthritis Metabolism and Digestive Diseases (now the National Institute of Diabetes and Digestive and Kidney Diseases). Dr. Lipsett’s research focused on adrenal steroid hormones, cancer, chemo-therapeutic agents, and reproductive endocrinology. He received numerous awards and published more than 275 scientific papers.
This year, NICHD’s intramural community has chosen Dr. Robert Udelsman as speaker. Dr. Udelsman, Chair of the Department of Surgery at Yale School of Medicine, is known for discovering surgical techniques that improve the health of endocrine patients and for his dedication to mentorship and education of future leaders in the field.
