Whistler Center Events - Belfort Lectures

The Belfort Lectures were established and endowed by Dr. Anne D. Belfort in memory of her late husband Dr. Alan M. Belfort, who was awarded a Ph.D. degree from Purdue University in carbohydrate chemistry in 1960. Support for the Belfort Lectures is generously continued by Alan and Anne’s daughter Anne E. Belfort. Persons honored by being chosen to give a Belfort Lecture are scientists who have made outstanding contributions to glycoscience.
