University of Scranton lecture series boasts Nobel-prize winning researchers


Throughout the past few decades, the Harry Mullin Lecture Series has brought some of the world's most renowned scientists and researchers to the University of Scranton, according to the Times-Tribune.

The series has drawn well-known figures in science, such as Nobel Prize-winning endocrine oncologist Andrew V. Schally. The doctor earned the award in 1977 for his work in neuroendocrinology. Dr. Schally was the 16th Nobel laureate to be part of the Mullin lecture series.

"I always try to find the greatest scientists," Brian Mullin, Harry Mullin's son, said. "I was never afraid to be turned down. I've had the greatest speakers in this world."

Dr. Schally's discovery of hypothalamic hormones is said to have laid the foundation for modern endocrinology. His work has also led to a therapy for prostate cancer that is used today, and he is the author or co-author of more than 2,300 published works.

According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, overall employment of healthcare workers is expected to increase dramatically over the next several years.
