Wallace P. Rowe Lecture & Bhatt Award Winner
Wallace P. Rowe was the first scientist to undertake systemic studies of many viral infections of laboratory animal mice. This lecture focuses on a current, innovative concept with implications for laboratory animal diseases.

Speaker and Title To Be Announced
History of the Wallace P. Rowe Lecture
The Wallace P. Rowe Lecture is an invited talk featured at the National Meeting of the American Association of Laboratory Animal Science (AALAS), the premier forum for the exchange of information and expertise in the care and use of laboratory animals. The Rowe lecture features a speaker who has made significant scientific contributions using animal models and is a strong role model for scientists in the field of Comparative Medicine. Dr. Rowe was the first scientist to undertake systemic studies of many of the viral infections of laboratory mice; he published over 225 scientific papers between 1950 and 1985 on diseases including Murine Leukemia Virus, SV40, human adenoviruses, and nearly all known viruses of rodents--polyoma virus, thymic virus, reovirus, MHV, LDHV, Theiler’s virus, LCMV , MAV, RCV and MVM. The Wallace P. Rowe Memorial Lectureship was established in 1985 to provide an enduring legacy to commemorate Dr. Rowe’s many contributions to laboratory animal science.
