From Penguins to Plankton: The Dramatic Impacts of Climate Change on the Antarctic Peninsula

22nd Maurice Galante Lecture- featuring James B. McClintock, PhD

James B. McClintock is the Endowed University Professor of Polar and Marine Biology at the University of Alabama at Birmingham. He  is one of the world’s foremost experts on Antarctic marine biology, and has led fourteen research expeditions to Antarctica over the past thirty years. In addition to his research, Dr. McClintock has written several books.

The Maurice Galante Lecture honors the late Maurice Galante, M.D., UCSF Professor Emeritus of Surgery. Dr. Galante has been described as "one of the last of a generation of real general surgeons"- those surgeons who bring the same superb technical expertise to a wide variety of surgical procedures. Maurice Galante also brought a rare humanism to his 50 years as a surgeon at the UCSF School of Medicine. The scores of residents he trained were the fortunate recipients of a course in medical ethics and surgical attitude while learning surgical skills from a master.

Dr. Galante developed a special relationship with his patients because of his sensitivity to their pain and suffering. Many of these patients have expressed their gratitude through donations to support various programs in the Department of Surgery, including this annual lecture and the Maurice Galante Distinguished Professorship.
