Established to honor and recognize the contributions of Joseph Ingraham, PhD, the Ingraham Lecture brings talented and internationally recognized experts in immunology to the IU School of Medicine every two years.
Ingraham was instrumental in the development of the graduate training program and worked diligently toward awarding the first PhD to a graduate student in 1957. Ingraham guided students to think carefully about scientific problems, formulate a hypothesis and analyze data with precision. Through the generosity of his family, an endowment was established for the lecture events.
