Professor Tom Muir (Van Zandt Williams Jr. Class of 1965 Professor of Chemistry and Department Chair, Department of Chemistry, Princeton University) has been named as the 6th Francis Johnson Lecturer. Prof. Muir’s research group uses tools of chemical biology, organic chemistry, and cell biology to develop a range of new technologies that provide fundamental insight into how proteins work in complex biochemical systems. The lecture has been postponed due to the COVID-19 pandemic and will be rescheduled for a future date that has not yet been determined.

The Francis Johnson Lectureship was created in 2010 by former students of Professor Francis Johnson in honor of his 80th birthday and in recognition of his contributions to both departments: Chemistry and Pharmacological Sciences at Stony Brook.

Miami), Dr. Carolyn Bertozzi (Stanford), Dr. Benjamin Cravatt (Scripps Institute), Dr. William DeGrado (UCSF), and Dr. Peter Schultz (Scripps Institute).
