Renowned British Psychiatry Professor To Deliver First Talk In New Endowed Lecture Series

April 25, 2001--

WHO: Sir Michael Rutter, professor at the Institute of Psychiatry, University of London, England

WHAT: Will deliver first public lecture in the new Mukamal Family Endowment Speaker series, sponsored by the University of Virginia's Center for Children, Families, and the Law

WHEN: Friday, May 11, 3 p.m.

WHERE: Room 190, Gilmer Hall, U.Va., Charlottesville

Rutter will lecture on "Are There Developmental Programming Effects for Psychological Development?" He was knighted in 1992 for his work, which includes 35 books, in child and family psychiatry. He also has received 11 honorary doctorates.

Steven Mukamal, an immigration lawyer in New York whose three oldest children attended U.Va., made the endowment to the Center for Children, Families, and the Law. Robert Emery, psychology professor and center director, established the speakers' program to recognize Mukamal's gift.

The U.Va. psychology department is co-sponsoring the lecture also to honor the work and retirement of Irving I. Gottesman, Sherrell J. Aston Professor of Psychology. Gottesman, who has been at U.Va. since 1985, is internationally renowned for his research in schizophrenia and behavior genetics. He and Rutter have collaborated on twin and family studies of autism for 20 years. They have known each other since 1963 when Gottesman did post-doctoral work at the University of London.
