John F. Hansbrough Memorial Lecture

Established in 2003, to honor the life and work of John F. Hansbrough, MD, the annual Hansbrough Memorial Lecture brings to campus the country's top minds in burn surgery and research. John F. Hansbrough was recruited to UCSD in 1984, as Director of the UCSD Burn Center. For 17 years, he helped to make the UCSD Burn Unit an internationally recognized center that delivered excellence in care and pioneering research, including describing the immunosuppressive effects of injury, and the challenge of developing wound coverage using artificial skin. Dr. Hansbrough's deep commitment to research continues to inspire us all at the Department of Surgery, as we pursue solutions that lead to tangible changes in care.

Annual Marshall J. Orloff Lecture

Established in honor of the founder of the Department of Surgery – Dr. Marshall J. Orloff – each year we bring leaders in the field of surgery and surgical science to present on the latest issues and innovations in research. Marshall J. Orloff was recruited from Harbor-UCLA at just 39 years old; named chair of the Department in September 1966; and assumed his new duties in January 1967. Core to Orloff's vision was for the department to be both a clinical and research powerhouse. "The best results in terms of quality and accuracy of care," Orloff says, "come from those who practice and teach. Teaching and research keep physicians on the leading edge for patients."

Joseph Tector, MD, PhD, Professor and Director, Xenotransplant Program, at the University of Alabama at Birmingham.
