The University of South Alabama department of neurology’s fourth annual Eran and N.Q. Adams Endowed Lecture and Visiting Professorship in Neurology will take place Oct. 30, 2012, at 8 a.m. at the USA Medical Center 2nd floor conference room.

This year’s lecture, titled “Therapy of Autonomic Disorders,” will feature Dr. David Robertson, professor of neurology at Vanderbilt University.

During the talk, Dr. Robertson will address new therapeutic advances in the field of autonomic disorders.

Dr. Robertson graduated from Vanderbilt University in 1969 with a B.A. in Germanic and Slavic Languages. He attended the Arnamagnaen Institute in Copenhagen, Denmark, before receiving his medical degree from Vanderbilt University Medical School in 1973.

Dr. Robertson completed an internship and residency in medicine at Johns Hopkins Hospital. In addition, he was a postdoctoral fellow in clinical pharmacology at Vanderbilt.

Along with his current roles as professor of medicine and pharmacology and professor of neurology, Dr. Robertson is currently the Elton Yates Professor of Autonomic Disorders, director of the General Clinical Research Center and director of the Center for Space Physiology and Medicine for Vanderbilt University.

The Eran and N.Q. Adams Endowed Scholarship was established to support, in the early stages of their careers, young physicians engaged in neurology who wish to gain a better understanding of dysautonomia. Third and fourth year medical students at USA were invited to submit applications for the scholarship that included a unique research or learning opportunity.
