The Department of Statistics in the College of Science at Texas A&M University will host the 2003 H.O. Hartley Memorial Lectures featuring Dr. Terry Speed Sept. 25 and 26.

Speed, a world authority on genetic research, is a professor at the University of California at Berkeley and also performs research at the Walter & Eliza Hall Institute of Medical Research in Melbourne, Australia.

Speed will present the first lecture, "Genes, Disease and Genetic Disease," September 25 at 4 p.m. in Room 201 of the Memorial Student Center (MSC) at Texas A&M. A reception will be held in Room 201 immediately following.

The H.O. Hartley Memorial Lectures were established by the Texas A&M University Department of Statistics in 1988 to honor Herman Otto Hartley, who founded the department, was a Distinguished Professor at Texas A&M in 1963 and was director of the department until his retirement in 1977.
