Members of the Molecular Mycology Course (MOMY) community announce their efforts to raise $25,000 to establish and endow the Deborah Hogan and Andrew Alspaugh Endowed Lecture. The lecture will be held as an annual component of the course.

Deborah Hogan, PhD, Professor of Microbiology and Immunology at Dartmouth Geisel School of Medicine and Andrew Alspaugh, MD, Professor of Medicine at Duke University School of Medicine, were the second generation of directors for the MBL Molecular Mycology course. Alumni of the course themselves, Deb and Andy share a deep commitment to training the next generation of scientists in their field. As co-Course Directors, they focused on highlighting new scientific innovations and new scientific voices within mycology, helping the students to envision their own personal and professional paths within this vibrant scientific community.

If, in the opinion of the Board of Trustees of the MBL, it eventually becomes impossible, impracticable, or inadvisable to use the expendable income from the Fund for the foregoing purpose, the Board may in its sole discretion apply the income to such other MBL purpose or purposes as will most nearly accomplish the donor’s intentions and at the same time permit appropriate and continuing recognition of the commemorative character of this gift.

By June 30, 2025, should this fundraising effort not reach the $25,000 goal, all accumulated funds may be spent annually for the intended purpose until fully expended.
