The Annual Thomas C. Merigan Jr. Lecture
Each year the Division of Infectious Diseases and Geographic Medicine hosts the Thomas C. Merigan, Jr. Lecture. This endowed lectureship is in honor of Dr. Merigan, Professor Emeritus, and the former Chief of the division of Infectious Diseases at Stanford. Dr. Merigan is an internationally known virologist whose laboratory contributed the tests to measure HIV viral load, among many other notable achievements, and he trained many leaders in the field of infectious diseases. Each year, the lectureships brings a renowned scientist to speak about their work in infectious diseases at Medicine Grand Rounds. The first lecture, in 1994, was given by Dr. Jonas Salk.
