The Ralph N. Adams Lectureship was established in 2017 with funds generously donated by two Adams research group alumni, Donald W. Leedy and Theodore Kuwana. The intent of this annual lectureship is to maintain cognizance of Prof. Adams's contributions as a scientist, mentor and humanitarian. The selected lecturer will be a prominent scientist in the field of bioanalytical chemistry, broadly defined, who can bring fresh research perspectives to the KU campus and whose research has been influenced by the research of Prof. Adams. The lectureship is jointly organized by KU's Department of Chemistry and the Adams Institute.
Selected lecturers include:
R. Mark Wightman
Emeritus W.R. Kenan, Jr. Professor of Chemistry
The University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill
