Graeme Copland Memorial Lecture

About the Lectureship

The Graeme Copland Memorial Lecture is a major event at the James Hogg Research Centre that is held on an annual basis to honour Dr. Graeme Copland, a distinguished physician who with Dr. Dick Donevan established the clinical chest service at St. Paul’s Hospital. Each year we invite a speaker with experience in both clinical medicine and research to St. Paul’s Hospital to meet with our staff and students and to give this important lecture.

We are pleased to announce that the 2019 recipient of the Graeme Copland Memorial Lecture is Dr. Shawn Aaron.
