The Kinyoun Lectures

The Kinyoun Lecture series was established by the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases in 1979 to honor Dr. Joseph J. Kinyoun who, in 1887, established the small Laboratory of Hygiene at the Marine Hospital on Staten Island, the predecessor of the National Institutes of Health. NIAID is the direct lineal descendent of the Laboratory of Hygiene within the NIH. These lectures will, for the most part, emphasize the interdependence of infection and immunity.
