Kay Redfield Jamison to Launch 'Voyage' Lecture Series

The Voyage and Discovery lecture series returns to Homewood campus on Tuesday, Feb. 12 when Dr. Kay Redfield Jamison, recent winner of the McArthur Fellowship and an authority on manic-depressive illness, arrives to describe the "story behind the story" of her research journey. The talk, which is free and open to the public, is scheduled to go from 7:30 to 9 p.m. in Mudd Hall.

Jamison, the best-selling author of the memoir, An Unquiet Mind, kicks off the fourth annual Voyage and Discovery lecture series, which began in spring of 1999.

Brian Rosenberg and Kathy Williams, both seniors who have worked on the lecture series since they were freshman, are the co-directors who put this year's events together. Both emphasized that they want to continue in the spirit of that first year, which is for world-renowned scientists, doctors and researchers to talk about the human stories behind their research, emphasizing the journey over scientific findings.

"We're interested in how they got where they are," said Rosenberg.

Joining Jamison for this year's Voyage and Discovery are Dr. James Hildreth, associate dean for Graduate Student Affairs and associate professor of Pharmacology and Molecular Sciences at the School of Medicine; Dr. Michael Ain, assistant professor in the division of Pediatric Orthopaedic Surgery at the School of Medicine, who personally suffers from achondroplasia and was featured in the ABC TV series, "Hopkins 24/7."

The final speaker in the series this year will be Dr. John Gearhart, a genetics expert who has been at the forefront of the high-profile debate over cloning and the use of stem cells in research. All events are free and open to the public and take place at 7:30 p.m. in Mudd Hall Auditorium on the Homewood campus. For more information, call 410-662-7033 or log on to www.jhu.edu/~voyage/.
