Jason Bodily, PhD, Assistant Professor of Microbiology and Immunology at LSU Health Shreveport, recently received the Charles C. Randall Lectureship from the South Central Branch of the American Society for Microbiology.
The Charles C. Randall Lectureship was established by the South Central Branch and awarded annually to an “outstanding young faculty member” who will present a lecture on his or her research at the annual branch meeting. A panel of senior faculty members appointed by the Branch President selects the recipient. The award includes travel expenses to the branch meeting, a plaque, and an honorarium. Dr. Bodily is the seventh LSU Health Shreveport faculty member to receive this esteemed award. The lectureship award honors Charles C. Randall, former Chairman of the Department of Microbiology at the University of Mississippi Medical Center and former President of the ASM South Central Branch, who made enormous contributions to the growth and development of the microbiological sciences within the South Central Branch, which includes the states of Arkansas, Louisiana and Mississippi.
