William G. Luttge Lectureship in Neuroscience

Held each year, the William G. Luttge Lectureship in Neuroscience explores inventive ideas and approaches to ensure healthy cognitive aging and to counter brain diseases. In 2012, the McKnight Brain Research Foundation endowed UF with $300,000 to establish a permanent annual lectureship as a memorial tribute to the late William G. “Bill” Luttge, Ph.D., the MBI’s first director.
