T. Evans Wyckoff Lecture in Neuroscience
The T. Evans Wyckoff Lecture in Neuroscience at Virginia Mason was established in 2000 by Ann Pigott Wyckoff in honor of her late husband, Theodore Evans Wyckoff. The lectureship is the Neuroscience Institute’s premiere annual event, featuring internationally-renowned physicians and researchers in the field of neuroscience. Lectures are free and open to the medical community.
The T. Evans Wyckoff Lecture in Neuroscience Endowed Fund annually provides funding to bring to the Virginia Mason campus a prominent leader in neuroscience to present his or her work in the field to the medical community.
This year’s Wyckoff Lecture has been canceled and will return in October 2021.
Theodore Evans Wyckoff was a lumber entrepreneur and former director of the Washington State Department of Commerce and Economic Development. He had an unquenchable thirst for learning and adventure. When diagnosed with ALS, Mr. Wyckoff took it upon himself to research and learn about his diagnosis with the same enthusiasm as his other intellectual pursuits. He always asked hard questions, sought truth and wisdom, welcomed contradictory opinions, and took pride in healthy debate. Today, his family continues his values in education and new knowledge with this lectureship.
