The 2012 Dorothy J. Killam Lecture will be given by Dr. Lily Jan, Professor of Physiology and Biochemistry at the University of California, San Francisco. Her lecture, entitled “Potassium channels and calcium-activated chloride channels for neuronal signaling” will take place on Wednesday, May 30, 2012 at 4:00 pm in the Jeanne Timmins Amphitheatre, Montreal Neurological Institute and Hospital.

A reception will follow in the Jeanne Timmins foyer.

The Dorothy J. Killam Lecture was established at The Neuro, one of five Killam Institutions, in 2004 to recognize women of influence in business, science, politics or the humanities. This important lecture is named after an extraordinary woman who, together with her husband, made immense contributions to Canadian education and science.
