The University of Arizona College of Medicine will celebrate Faculty Science Forum Founder's Day, Friday, Nov. 16, Noon to 1 p.m., at DuVal Auditorium, University Medical Center.
Keynote speakers will be Thomas M. Grogan, MD, UA professor of pathology, whose presentation is titled, "Much Ado About Nothing," and Frank Porreca, PhD, UA professor of pharmacology and anesthesiology, whose presentation is titled, "Pain: It's Not All Good."

A reception will follow in the DuVal Auditorium foyer.

The Founder's Day lectureship was established in 1979 to recognize and honor UA College of Medicine faculty for their scientific accomplishments. Each year, a committee of the faculty selects one of their peers to provide a presentation on the date of the founding of the College of Medicine. (This year, two faculty members were chosen.)

Speakers are nominated and selected based on the following guidelines: "the faculty member embodies a model of an investigator whose research work has a continuous thread of significance and who can effectively present his/her research with enthusiasm, vigor and inspiration."
