Lasby Fellowship

Bringing distinguished speakers and researchers to the School of Dentistry

The School of Dentistry Lasby Fellowship was established in 1967 to bring distinguished American and international scholars to the School of Dentistry. The fellowship was made possible by a generous bequest from Dr. Helen Lasby Jeffries in memory of her father, Dr. William F. Lasby, who was professor and dean of the School of Dentistry from 1927 to 1945.

Current funding supports several long and short fellowships annually. Faculty who would like to invite a Lasby Fellow should contact Jan Casey at [email protected].
