About the Series
Dr. Avanelle Kirksey, a valued faculty member of the Department of Nutrition Science from 1961 to 1994, left a legacy at Purdue University. Her dynamic, productive, and imaginative research program bridged the gap from basic mechanistic science to a better understanding of the relation of diet to human behavior and cognition. In addition to her demanding research program, she is an inspiring role model for students.
In 1985, Dr. Kirksey became the second female distinguished professor at Purdue University. In 1997, she received an Honorary Doctorate from Purdue. Her groundbreaking research, valued teaching, and community outreach efforts are honored with this lecture series that is held each spring.
