Jan. 22 DSS to Feature Dr. Raymond Langley

This week's Distinguished Scientist Seminar at the University of South Alabama College of Medicine will feature Dr. Raymond J. Langley, an associate research scientist in the LRRI Respiratory Immunology and Asthma Program at Lovelace Respiratory Research Institute in Albuquerque, NM.

The lecture, titled Integrative Omics Analysis of Sepsis: Biomarkers for Improved Patient Management,” will take place Jan. 22, 2015, at 4 p.m. in the first floor auditorium of the Medical Sciences Building on USA’s main campus.

Dr. Langley earned his undergraduate degree from the University of New Mexico (UNM) in journalism in 1996. In 1999, after attending a seminar by Dr. Francis Collins on the Human Genome Project, Dr. Langley decided to return to UNM to finish his biology degree and switch his career to science.

Dr. Langley originally joined LRRI as a research technician. Two years later, he moved to the UNM biomedical sciences graduate program where he earned his Ph.D. in 2007. After graduation, he went to the National Center for Genome Resources as a post-doctoral fellow.

The Lovelace Respiratory Research Institute (LRRI) is a private, biomedical research organization dedicated to improving public health through research on the prevention, treatment and cure of respiratory disease. Click here to learn more.
