Deborah Lycan Alumni Speakers Fund

The Biochemistry and Molecular Biology (BCMB) program was established at Lewis & Clark College in 1990 as an interdisciplinary program bridging the Biology and Chemistry departments.

The Deborah Lycan Alumni Speakers fund was initially endowed by Dr. Lycan in 2008 to support the research-active culture of the program.  Its primary purpose is to provide financial assistance to bring BCMB alumni back to campus to present on their scientific work and to meet with current undergraduates, as part of the BCMB seminar program.  It will also support senior thesis students who want to present their work at national scientific conferences.
