Dean Of Medicine

William Salzer, MD and Gordon Christensen, MD Lectureship in Infectious Diseases

The MU Division of Infectious Diseases lost two beloved faculty members in the past year. Dr. Bill Salzer, professor of medicine and director of the division, passed away on September 29, 2019, and Dr. Gordon Christensen, professor emeritus, died on February 29, 2020. Both men leave a legacy that will be felt by family, patients and students. In recognition of their more than 55 combined years of outstanding contributions to the School of Medicine, we are establishing a lectureship in their names that will allow the division to host lectures on timely topics as a tribute to the work of these treasured physicians.
