Macpherson Seminar Series

Dr. L. B. Macpherson taught biochemistry at Dalhousie University for sixteen years and played a major role in the development of the Medical School.

The Macpherson Seminar Series was established in 2018 on the occasion of the 150th anniversary of the Dalhousie Medical School and the 200th anniversary of Dalhousie University. The Seminars are given annually by graduates of the Department of Biochemistry & Molecular Biology who have distinguished themselves in their careers since leaving Dalhousie. The Lecture Series is named in honour of Dr. Lloyd B. Macpherson, a previous member of the Department of Biochemistry & Molecular Biology and Dean of the Faculty of Medicine at Dalhousie University.
