On October 28, renowned microbiologist Dr. Porter W. Anderson Jr. joined President Seligman and Trustee Emeritus G. Robert Witmer Jr. ’59 in honoring the research work of Dr. Francis Gigliotti ’83M (Flw) , the new Lindsey Chair for Pediatric Research. Chief of the Division of Pediatric Diseases at Golisano Children’s Hospital, Dr. Gigliotti is at the forefront of his field for understanding infections in those with compromised immune systems.
Dr. Anderson endowed the chair, naming it after one of the first children to receive the H influenza type B vaccine that he co-developed. His intention for the chair is to recognize children and their parents who participate in clinical trials and who make it possible to move fundamental biomedical research findings into clinical practice. Dr. Anderson is a professor emeritus of the departments of Pediatrics and Microbiology and Immunology in the School of Medicine and Dentistry.
