The Beirne B. Carter Lecture in Immunology was established to bring a distinguished medical scientist each year to the UVA Health System.  In keeping with Mr. Carter’s vision, the scientist is chosen based on his or her research accomplishments contributing to the areas of basic and clinical immunology and to our understanding of human disease and its cure.
