Other Medicine Lectureships
We host a number of lectureships throughout the year honoring the contributions of notable past faculty members. These occur in place of the weekly grand rounds.
Arthur C. Fox Lectureship
Established in 2002, the Arthur C. Fox Lectureship honors the legacy of respected educator Arthur Fox, MD, chief of NYU Langone’s Division of Cardiology for more than 30 years. Dr. Fox also served as president of the New York Heart Association and the New York Cardiological Society, the educational arm of the New York State Chapter of the American College of Cardiology. This annual lecture highlights the latest topics in cardiology.
John McClement Lectureship
The John McClement Lectureship, established in 1988, recognizes the many contributions of teacher, clinician, and leader John McClement, MD, director of the Bellevue Hospital Chest Service from 1955 to 1983. This annual lecture features eminent scholars and orators in pulmonary medicine.
Max Trubek Lectureship
The annual Max Trubek Lectureship was established in 2002 with a generous gift from the Bellevue Hospital Alumni Association. Distinguished pathologist Max Trubek, MD, trained several generations of medical students and house staff at NYU Langone. In his private practice, which he maintained well into his 90s, he brought a thoughtful, scholarly approach to diagnosing and treating patients. Dr. Trubek’s clinical acumen and compassionate, humanistic approach to patient needs earned him a reputation as a master clinician.
Herbert Chasis Lectureship
Founded in 2000, the annual Herbert Chasis Lectureship honors Herbert Chasis, MD, an exceptional teacher and clinician and a pioneer in applying quantitative methods to the study of renal diseases. A recipient of the Solomon A. Berson Medical Alumni Achievement Award, which honors accomplishments in research, health science, medicine, and the arts, Dr. Chasis provided the framework for understanding human kidney function and the pathophysiology of the kidneys in hypertension and nephritis.
Melvin C. Gluck Lectureship
The annual Melvin C. Gluck Lectureship, established in 2004, honors the founder of NYU Langone’s Division of Nephrology. An outstanding teacher, clinician, and beloved physician, Melvin Gluck, MD, also served as the director of our Nephrology Fellowship program.
Belsky Memorial Lectureship
The daughter and sister of two faculty members at NYU Langone’s Department of Medicine, Anne Belsky Moranis was a gifted artist and mother of two. Following her death at age 35 after extensive treatment for breast cancer, the Anne Belsky Moranis Fund was established in her honor in 1992. The fund endows the annual Belsky Memorial Lecture, delivered by renowned leaders and researchers in the field of breast cancer.
Simon Karpatkin Memorial Lectureship
Established in 2011, the Simon Karpatkin Memorial Lectureship honors internationally renowned HIV and AIDs researcher and Department of Medicine faculty member Simon Karpatkin, MD. Dr. Karpatkin was among the first to recognize an epidemic of Kaposi sarcoma in immunosuppressed patients at Bellevue Hospital in the 1980s. His many contributions to the field include describing the mechanisms that antibodies in patients with HIV use to destroy platelets and the role of thrombin in tumor growth and metastasis.
As director of the Division of Hematology and Medical Oncology and his own research laboratory, Dr. Karpatkin mentored generations of young physicians and trained dozens of hematologists. Physician–scientists who deliver this lecture are chosen on the basis of published work in the field of hematology that is expected to have a lasting impact on science and clinical practice.
