As part of the BMB Colloquium, the department, with the generous support of contributors, hosts four endowed lectures each year that pay tribute to outstanding scientists from the department. Presenters for the Charles C. Sweeley Lecture in Biochemistry, the Nathan Edward Tolbert Lecture in Plant Biochemistry, and the William W. Wells Lecture are selected by the BMB Colloquium committee. Presenters for the biannual John A. Boezi and R. Gaurth Hansen Alumnus Award lectures are determined by the BMB Awards Committee.
